Dar Days is a narrative account of Charles R. Swift's experiences in Tanzania during his eight year employment by the Tanzanian government, serving as Consultant Psychiatrist to the Ministry of Health and Professor of Psychiatry in the new Faculty of Medicine. This book proceeds chronologically from Swift's arrival in Dar es Salaam in September 1966 to his departure in July 1974. Dar Days is unique in its description of life in a newly independent African nation. It helps the reader understand why Tanzania has remained politically stable throughout its forty years, a paradigm of what can occur when people work together for a common good.
