Amrit Wilson has tapped a wide range of sources to tell a story of Zanzibar in modern times. As interesting as the narrative she puts together is the vantage point from which she tells it. This book deserves a wide audience. (Mahmood Mamdani, Herbert Lehman Professor of Government and Professor of Anthropology, Columbia University) Amrit Wilson offers an insightful and compelling analysis of the concrete struggle against neo-colonialism as it has played out, over the last several decades, in Zanzibar and what is now Tanzania. Getting beyond the headlines and the official histories, and with access to material previously unavailable, Wilson introduces the reader to a 1960s movement that could have brought about the revolutionary transformation of Zanzibar, and quite possibly other parts of East Africa, had it not been hijacked. There were moments when Wilson's compelling narrative had the feel of gripping novel! (Bill Fletcher, Jr., co-editor of Claim No Easy Victories: The Legacy of Amilcar Cabral)
