Between five lines: the development of ethnicity in Tanzania with special reference to the western Bagamoyo District
The Nordic Africa Institute.
1997 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The research area of this study was once the focal point of colonial penetration in East Africa. The author traces evolution of ethnicity from the 15th century until the post-colonial period. She argues that ethnic group identification is used as a self-referent. People's perception of the present is a reflection of the colonial practice of dividing people into tribes. Yet, villagers in the Bagamoyo District stress commonality - another dimension of ethnic consciousness.
