Summary note:
"Development is an on-going process, and the drive for better life is endless. Tanzania stands out as one of the very few African countries that have managed to sustain peace harmony and unity in more than half a century of independence. Despite this reckoned achievement, the country is faced by a myriad of socio-economic challenges. These range from income poverty to diseases,low education as well as poor advancement in science and technology ow productivity weak governance and equity; uncompetitive private sector, and multitude of other problems. This book is a collective effort of leading academics and professionals on Tanzania's development. It reviews earlier efforts of transforming Tanzania, and assesses why early industrial transformation failed, thus worsening economic growth and livelihoods. The book also reviews experiences of countries that managed to transform, and attempts to answer the question: how did other countries do it?"--Page 4 of cover.
