Books for East Africa Travels
The Gunny Sack
"A family saga from the Asian East African communities."
Looking for Lovedu: Days and Nights in Africa
"One woman's wry take on the macho enterprise of Exploring Africa . She tells the story of her own grimy 4WD overlanding adventure shone though by perspicacious humour."
"A young girl growing up among false promises and double standards. Zimbabwean but speaks eloquently also to conditions further east."
The Milkman Doesn't Only Deliver Milk (Baobab poetry series)
"By the same reasoning - a mature and sensitive Zimbabwean poet."
Wizard of the Crow
"The author of the classics that broke new postcolonial ground in the '60s and '70s delivers a renewed critique of power relations in Kenya in the 2000s. An epic 'Animal Farm', Fantastical humour."
Livingstone's Tribe: A Journey From Zanzibar to the Cape
"A typical white travel story, but in seeking out various influential personages and telling their unique and eccentric stories, the author does actually achieve an informative travelogue. Witty too."
The Shadow of the Sun: My African Life
"Kapuszinski was the Africa correspondent for Polish news for several decades. His vantage point as white, but not from a colonial power or a rich donor country, is refreshing."
The Zanzibar Chest: A Memoir of Love and War
"A Reuters journalist who witnessed Africa's most harrowing moments tries to make sense of his own experiences whilst re-tracing his fore-father's across the continent."
Life Under Nyerere
"I haven't read this particular one, but I feel it's important to have a book on Nyerere here. Previous ones have been a little hagiographic, and with time they're becoming less so."
"A yearly collection of cutting-edge new East African fiction, predominantly Kenyan"
10 Years of the Caine Prize (Caine Prize for African Writin)
"The Caine Prize and anytthing they publish is another place to look out for prize-winning Tanzanian fiction."
In Search of a Nation: Histories of Authority & Dissidence in Tanzania (Eastern African Studies (Paperback))
"Essays on Tanzanian political history."
The Great Lakes of Africa: Two Thousand Years of History
"Yes, Tanzania does form part of the Great Lakes Region. The reason why this is often forgotten is that it breaks the mould of violence that the region has come to symbolise."
Intersecting Places, Emancipatory Spaces: Women Journalists in Tanzania
"Two dramas of a social group that escapes the stereotypes."
Africa: The Politics of Suffering and Smiling (World Political Theories) (World Poltical Theories)
"Africanists either love or hate Chabal. Researchers I met in Dar raved about it. Others find summarising knowledge of the entire continent from several disciplines arrogant. A quick read."
African Politics in Comparative Perspective
"A distillation of 50 years' research on African politics by a 'big name' in Tanzanian studies."
"Roald Dahl worked in Dar for some years. His pithy autobiography includes some insightful descriptions of independence-era Tanzania."
