Abstract:The purpose of this paper is to describe two approaches to village settlement in Tanzania in the first few years after independence: one planned by former colonial service officers heavily capitalized and bureaucratized; the other a spontaneous people's movement with virtually no capital input but having the advice of one expatriate idealist. The former was a colossal failure; the latter a great succes. The article shows why this was the case and considers whether both types of development strategies have lessons, positive and negative, for the present rulers of Tanzania. Notes.
