A Bibliography on Rural Development in Tanzania. MSU Rural Development Paper No. 3.
Kocher, James E.; Fleisher, Beverly
Rural development is understood to mean both the increased productivity of agriculture and other rural economic activities and the enhancement of the material well-being of the rural people (who comprise about 90% of Tanzania's 16 million population) through education, improved health, and better nutrition. Seven hundred and sixty-one books, articles, research papers, and theses published in English by scholars of many nationalities between 1963 and 1968 are listed in this bibliography for teachers, researchers, policy-makers, donor agencies, and rural development practitioners. Entries are arranged under the subjects: historical perspective; background information; ideology and policy; physical geography and land use; demography; social stratification, participation and modernization; planning and finance; land tenure; agricultural policy and planning; rural policy and problems; Ujamma; villigization and settlement; health; nutrition; education; labor, employment and manpower; women in rural development; income distribution; water supply, housing and transportation; farm management; savings and credit; rural co-operatives; crop production; livestock; mechanization and adoption of innovation; rural industry; marketing and price policy; and extension and diffusion of innovations. Entries are cross-referenced and an author index is provided. Tanzanian addresses are given for obtaining those publications not available at larger American university libraries. (NEC)
