The Nyamwezi of west-central Tanzania have had a long history of involvement in the wider world as farmers, traders, migrant labourers, and subjects of first German and then British colonial regimes. Dr Abrahams first lived and worked among the Nyamwezi in the last years of British rule (1957 60), and he revisited their area in 1974 5 and 1978. This book is based largely on these later visits and traces the nature of developments since his earlier work and publications on the people. He discusses the people's integration into their new nation and examines the changes and problems that this has involved, both at village and at higher levels of organization. First published in 1984, The Nyamwezi Today will be of interest both to ghe general reader and to beginning, and other, students of social anthropology and the sociology and politics of developing countries. It will also be of value to those teaching and researching in these fields."
