Abstract:The author recalls his observations on political developments, particularly the years of 'ujamaa' and Julius Nyerere, from the 1960s and early 1970s when he lived and worked in Tanzania. Paying attention to both strengths and weaknesses, his observations include references to both the authoritarian nature of Nyerere's own 'democratic' practice and the very high costs that the president's chosen methods (and those of TANU, the party he led) inflicted upon the movement for progressive change in Tanzania. He concludes that Africa should learn from Tanzania the very real costs of not having dared enough. Bibliogr., notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
