Not Yet Democracy: Reforming land tenure in Tanzania
Book, 144 pages
This is a first book of its kind to address the problems of land tenure reform in an East African country. In 1991, the Tanzanian government formed a Commission of Inquiry into Land Matters (CILM) and published a report in 1992, which has been hailed by many reviewers and experts as a landmark in the African land tenure literature. The Chairman of the CILM, Professor Issa Shivji, and author of this book, places the work of the Commission within its broader context and sets its findings within the current democracy debate raging all over Africa, including treatement of the proposed new Tanzania Land Act. The book adds a fresh dimension to the literature on African political economy and should be useful to students of political science, economics, law and development studies.
