The Tanganyika Way spans the political events of 1958-1961 that led to Tanganyika's (now Tanzania) independence from Britain. Sophia Mustafa participated in those events, and her account offers a rare insider's perspective on the political drama. She covers large international and national issues, which, coupled with the smaller personal details of her life, open a window into a time and an experience that are emblematic of an unique historical moment.
This re-issue is accompanied by rare photographs and a series of short essays that collectively offer historical, familial, and political contexts of the the author, her work, and the place.
By Sophia Mustafa. Contibutors are Susan Berger, Marjori Mbiliny, and Ulla Vuorela. With an introduction by Fawzia Mustafa, and with the original forward by Julius K Nyerere.
