In The Iraqiv of Tanzania: Negotiating Rural Development author Katherine Snyder focuses on how the Iraqw perceive, respond to, and affect development in Tanzania. Snyder explores how the ideology of development affects people’s actions, from what crops to plant, to what to wear and do at their weddings, and also considers how issues of development play out between elders and juniors, men and women, and wealthy and poor. She shows the creativity of local actors in adapting to new ideological shifts and using the rhetoric of development to pursue their own goals. Presenting the author’s own fieldwork, avoiding jargon, and making extensive use of vignettes—stories of peoples’ lives and incidents—The Iraqiv of Tanzania illustrates its themes in a manner useful and fascinating to students.
