Koponen examines the changing ideas and practices of development in Tanganyika from the late 1930s to the 1950s. These ideas and practices are indicative of wider shifts and trends operating throughout the British colonial empire at the time. The focus is on three development endeavours, very different in themselves: (1) the Groundnut Scheme, (2) the promotion and expansion of cashew nut as a cash crop, and (3) the post-war colonial development plans, across the country and in the South-East. By exploring and comparing these three different approaches to development under colonialism, the author shows the variety of meanings of development in British colonial discourse and practice and spells out their implications for the history of the idea of development more broadly.
