Joe Lugalla
Adjustment and Poverty in Tanzania
Reihe: Bremer Afrika Studien
Bd. 12, 1995, 136 S., 17.90 EUR, 17.90 CHF, br., ISBN 3-8258-2007-6

In his book Lugalla looks at the relationship between adjustment policies and poverty in Tanzania. He understands Tanzanian poverty in the context of dominant social relations of inequality and not in terms of poverty lines. The author's main argument is that adjustment policies are intensifying these relations in Tanzania rather than reducing or eliminating them. He concludes that adjustment policies are not able to solve but create and even intensify poverty in Tanzania.

Joe L. P. Lugalla is a Tanzanian Social Anthropologist. After researches at Universities in Germany, Austria and the USA, Lugalla is now an Assistant Professor in the Anthropology Program in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of New Hampshire, Durham in USA.
