Sinopsis:

This work examines the struggle between the Meru and Arusha peoples and their German and British rulers over the issue of land and agricultural development on Mount Meru in northern Tanzania. It shows how the Meru and Arashi, faced with an "iron ring" of land alienated by European settlers successfully intensified their own irrigated agriculture to bring about what has been termed an "indigenous agricultural revolution".

From the Inside Flap:

"This is a rich, stimulating work, written in clear and compelling prose, that will appeal to scholars in a variety of disciplines."—Angelique Haugerud, author of The Culture of Politics in Modern Kenya

"Among the numerous contributions made by this book are its discussion of the politics of pseudo-traditionalism, its tracing of the emergence of a Christian leadership, and indeed its whole reconsideration of the significance of missions and Christianity."—James L. Giblin, author of Environmental Control in Northeastern Tanzania, 1840-1940
