Studies in East African history by Norman R Bennett( Book )

6 editions published in 1963 in English and Undetermined and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The four studies in this collection are the result of visits to African, European and American libraries and archives from 1958 to 1960. They do not revolve around any one theme, but rather seek to recount various aspects of the history of Africa that have not been told in detail before. Mirambo, one of the most important African leaders of Tanganyika in the nineteenth century, has never had a serious biography. The Holy Ghost Mission in Tanganyika and the American influence in Zanzibar from 1865 to 1915 suffer from a similar lack. Finally, the study on Mwinyi Mtwana is meant to draw attention to the myriad relationships between the Sultan of Zanzibar and those in Africa who considered themselves under his suzerainty - a subje still largely untouched by students of East African history."--Preface

"During the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries the fertile islands of Zanzibar and Pemba became of central importance to East Africa's growing contact with the international economy as the ruling dynasty encouraged trade in cloves, slaves and ivory. This book, first published in 1978, provides an account of the history of Zanzibar from those early days of trade up to independence and the Revolution that removed the Arab ruling class in 1964"--Provided by publisher
