Overview

This is the fourth edition of 'Nyerere and Africa: End of an Era. It is also the largest and includes new material not found in previous editions.

The work is a comprehensive study of the political career of President Julius Nyerere spanning half a century. The author takes a critical look at Nyerere's policies and influence in the domestic and international arenas for an objective evaluation of the life and times of one of the most influential leaders in the twentieth century. The major role he played in the liberation of southern Africa is just one of the subjects addressed by the author.

He also provides insights into Nyerere's personality from some of the people who knew him best. Included in the book are interviews with some of the people who knew Nyerere since his childhood. Some of them were his teachers. And they outlived him. Others were his schoolmates and colleagues in government and when he was a teacher. And some of them were his students. Also included are interviews with some of his family members.

This is an essential study of post-colonial Africa. It is also a study in political leadership and Cold War politics in the African context, among many other subjects addressed in the book which should serve as a reference text for scholars and laymen alike interested in Africa and the Third World in general.

    A major book and a masterpiece of analysis

    This is a major study of Africa in modern times before and after independence. It begins with the consolidation of the nation-state at the dawn of independence but also covers the period before the end of colonial rule when African leaders were mobilizing forces in their struggle for freedom. African liberation movements in the sixties and seventies have been fully addressed in this work. So has the end of apartheid. The book is more than just a comprehensive work on the career of President Julius Nyerere and the pivotal role he played in the liberation of southern Africa. It is a study of African politics and leadership and a masterful analysis of one of the most important periods in African history. The death of Mwalimu Nyerere was indeed the end of an era in the history of modern Africa. With this work, the authhor, Godfrey Mwakikagile, has gained influence among the elite - including African leaders - and ordinary people, by sheer force of his intellect, not because he holds any public office. And his book will be read for many years to come.
