In The Iraqw of Tanzania: Negotiating Rural Development, author Katherine Snyder focuses on how the Iraqw perceive, respond to, and affect development in Tanzania. Snyder explores how the ideology of development affects people's actions, from what crops to plant, to what to wear and do at their weddings, and considers too how issues of development play out between elders and juniors, men and women, and wealthy and poor. She shows the creativity of local actors in adapting to new ideological shifts and using the rhetoric of development to pursue their own goals. Presenting the author's own fieldwork, avoiding jargon, and making extensive use of vignettes--stories of peoples' lives and incidents--The Iraqw of Tanzania illustrates its themes in a manner useful and fascinating to students. Detailed, richly textured ethnographic material Covers fundamental anthropology topics (kinship, politics, gender, economy, etc) An ideal text for courses on peoples and cultures of Africa, Third World development, postcolonial studies, and anthropology of religion.
Katherine A. Snyder is assistant professor of anthropology at Queens College, CUNY. She specializes in development, globalization, gender, religion, and agrarian change in East Africa.
