Abstract:This book looks at the relationship between religion and State in Tanzania as a feature of the Tanzanian social scene from pre-colonial and colonial to post-colonial times. The authors examine the changes in the character of religion and State relations, especially after independence, and the way these changes are experienced in different communities (particularly by African traditionalists, Muslims and Christians). The book studies the nature of the relationship between religion and State, the way it is conceptualized and experienced, and the implications for the democratic aspirations of pluralist Tanzania.

Kilaini, Frans Wijsen, Francis Lyimo, Ahmad Kipacha, Justina Dugbazah, Simeon Mesaki, Richard Sambaiga, Evaristi Magotti, Huruma Sigalla and Sam Maghimbi. [ASC Leiden abstract]
