Review:

"Cultured States is an enormous contribution to scholarship on the cultural politics of postcolonial East Africa. It is filled with rich and wonderful insights into youth, fashion, and the political culture of the 1960s." Luise S. White, author of Speaking with Vampires: Rumor and History in East and Central Africa "Andrew Ivaska brings historical depth and nuance to an inherently fascinating subject: cultural politics in early postcolonial Africa. His original, conceptually sophisticated chronicle of the heated cultural debates that took place in Dar es Salaam Tanzania during the 1960s demonstrates a masterful grasp of comparative scholarship on popular culture, modernity, and globalization." Lynn M. Thomas, author of Politics of the Womb: Women, Reproduction, and the State in Kenya "Ivaska's account of 1960s-era university government struggles in Dar es Salaam fills amajor gap in published scholarship. Where many scholars currently conceive that development reframes local traditions within a context that prioritizes 'the national', Ivaska shows how local invocations of national and international social struggles reconstitute the meaning of development. Drawing on letters to editors, archival materials, and interviews conducted in Dar es Salaam, Ivaska documents that early independence elites' visions of culture refracted and combined particular ideas of indigeneity and modern decency; and that Dar es Salaam students' own ideas of independence reveal particular ideas of consumerism and international culture." - Amy Stamback, Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

From the Publisher:

Cultured States sheds new light on the connections between culture and politics in early postcolonial East Africa. Focusing on Tanzania, Andrew Ivaska explores tensions between the national culture promoted by the state and the urban culture of Dar es Salaam, the nation's largest city. These tensions were evident in the debates conducted in the press, streets, and bars of Dar es Salaam in response to state campaigns banning "decadent" forms of popular culture, including miniskirts, bell-bottoms, and soul music; student protests and activism at the University College of Dar es Salaam; and official proposals for overhauling colonial-era marriage laws. Ivaska relates these to controversies to social struggles in a rapidly changing city. Migration from the countryside was booming, and despite high unemployment in Dar es Salaam, the city offered young women migrants increased opportunities for economic and social autonomy, in relation not only to the lives they had left, but also to young men's fortunes in the city. Many young men came to resent the conspicuous wealth of the city's elite, older men, who were rumoured to be "sugar daddies" to "city girls." Claims to modernity were invoked toward different ends: by those attempting to create a national culture both modern and distinctly non-Western, and by young Tanzanians who found some of the Western, and particularly African American, styles circulating through Dar es Salaam to epitomize modern style.

Descripción Duke University Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Cultured States is a vivid account of the intersections of postcolonial state power, the cultural politics of youth and gender, and global visions of modern style in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, during the 1960s and early 1970s. Andrew Ivaska describes a cosmopolitan East African capital rocked by debates over youth culture, national cultural policy, the rumored sexual escapades of the postcolonial elite, the content of university education, leftist activism, and the reform of colonial-era marriage laws. If young Tanzanians saw themselves as full-fledged participants in modern global culture, their understandings of the modern conflicted with that of a state launching decency campaigns banning cultural forms such as soul music, miniskirts, wigs, and bell-bottoms. Promoted by the political elite as a radical break from the colonial order, these campaigns nonetheless contained strong echoes of colonial assumptions about culture, tradition, and African engagements with the modern city. Exploring the ambivalence over the modern at the heart of these contests, Ivaska uses them as lenses through which to analyze struggles around gender relations and sexual politics, youth and masculinity, and the competition for material resources in a Dar es Salaam in rapid flux. Cultured States is a major contribution to understandings of urban cultural politics; national political culture; social struggles around gender, generation, and wealth; and the transnational dimensions of postcolonial histories too often conceived within national frames.
