Abstract:Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere was one of those who graduated from the University of Edinburgh in the 1950s who was honoured with a special millennial plaque in 2000. This prompted the Centre of African Studies to bring together in one collection a number of people who in different ways had had a relationship with Nyerere and with the country - Tanzania - and the institutions that he influenced. The strong Edinburgh and Scottish dimension of the collection underlines the need for a full biography of Nyerere that takes account of the first crucial 30 years from his birth in 1922 until he left Edinburgh University in 1952, by which time it would seem that his basic political philosophy had been formed.
