Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Maji Maji contains the table of contents, list of maps, plates, figures and tables, the editors acknowledgments and a list of contributors. The Maji Maji war of 1905-07 in Tanzania was the largest African rebellion against European colonialism. The book offers the fullest account of the war in the English language. Using oral accounts and little-used documentary evidence, contributors offer detailed histories of districts and localities as well as groups, such as African soldiers in the German army, elephant hunters and women, whose roles in war have been neglected.

Keywords: African rebellion; European colonialism; Maji Maji War
