Review:

'This is an important work for Tanzanian history, but also for the methodology of oral history.' - Thaddeus Sunseri in Journal of African History '...superb...' - Deborah Gaitskell in The English Historical Review '...pathbreaking study...This work stands nationalist history on its head by documenting the influence of Bibi Titi Mohamed and other female leaders.' - Margaret Snyder in Choice 'Geiger is to be commended for revealing the political efforts, the imagination and the verve of women without whom TANU would not have had its wide appeal and whose names might otherwise have been forgotten.' - Janet Bujra in ROAPE 'Geiger's book is the result of impeccable scholarship, outstanding vision and great warmth and empathy toward the women she writes of. I recommend it to everyone with an interest in women, East Africa and African nationalism.' - Catherine Macdonald in AFSAAP '...engrossing...' - Deborah Bryceson in The Journal of Commonwealth & Comparative Politics '...absorbing...' - Tanzanian Affairs
