John Ndembwike, Tanzania: The Land and Its People (Grand Rapids, Michigan: National Academic Press,
This book is a general introduction to Tanzania today. It is a sweeping survey of the country and its people written
by John H.M. Ndembwike, a Tanzanian engineer, which also looks at the country's economic potential including its tourist attractions
which attract hundreds of thousands of tourists from all the world.
An excellent overview of Tanzania, a country which is also considered to be the cradle of mankind; although this claim
may be contested by Ethiopia and Kenya, the other East African countries like Tanzania, where some of the earliest fossils
of "mankind" have also been found.
But for anyone who wants to learn about Tanzania in general, this is one of the best introductory texts ever written.
