The Thesis examines the role of the ideology of socialism, as defined by Julius Nyerere, in the post independent years of Tanzania. Theoretical works will be cited. They list the possible roles an ideology can play. In addition, 'factors' that effect the role of an ideology at a specific time will be considered. The thesis will relate these possible roles to the Tanzanian experience.
In our investigation the concepts of Tanzanian socialism will be articulated. The relationship between social pressures and the formulation of the ideology, and the influence of that ideology on Tanzanian development will also be observed. Drawing from the Tanzanian experience, some broad conclusions will be made concerning the power of an ideology to aid modernization programmes in under-developed nations.
