Development for Exploitation: German Colonial Policies in Mainland Tanzania, 1884-1914
This study is at the same time a reinterpretation of German colonial policies in Mainland Tanzania 1884-1914 and a broader thesis on the interrelations between colonialism, exploitation and development. The author argues that although colonialism was basically an exploitative system, much of what we nowadays call development began in Mainland Tanzania during the early phase of German colonialism. Indeed, only 'development' made colonial exploitation possible. Combining structure-led and actor-oriented approaches, the study discusses the genesis and workings of German colonial policies and traces their impact. In addition to economic policies, it covers the issues of labour, population, technology, natural resources, health and education.
