This work is about life in Tanzania today. It's also a general survey of life in Tanzania since the sixties. Subjects covered include major political and socioeconomic changes which have taken place in the country since independence. The author also looks at life under ujamaa - the African version of socialism - in the seventies and eighties when the government tried to transform Tanzania into a socialist nation; life under capitalism after socialism was abandoned in the early 1990s; how multiparty democracy has worked and how it has not worked in Tanzania after the country abandoned one-party rule in 1992; the union of Tanganyika and Zanzibar and the problems and challenges it faces and has faced since it was formed in 1964, and other subjects. The book is also a general introduction to Tanzania - its geography and its people. The author has looked at all the administrative regions or provinces and the ethnic groups in every region. Tanzania has one of the largest numbers of ethnic groups in Africa. The author also explains why Tanzania's demographic composition is unique on the continent. The work is intended for members of the general public including those who are going to Tanzania for the first time.
