Abstract:Contents: 1: Northern Tanzania and History: Places, Plants and People; 2: Precarious Beginnings and the End of Independence (1891 to 1906); 3: Consolidation of the African-European Landscape (1907 to March 1916); 4: Places: A New Ordering; 5: Plants: The Green Immigrants; 6: People: Christianity and Botanical Proselytization; 7: A New World in Northern Tanzania: Beyond 1916 with the Places, Plants and People. The book explores the relationship between the environment and social change on Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru during the German colonial period (1890-1916). The work analyzes the synergy between landscape change, exotic plant introduction, and Christian missionizing, showing how these three types of transformation impacted upon each other as well as the changing African societies to create a new African/German landscape.
