"[...] study of the Zande Scheme, a unique development program designed to test the possibility of making the remoter areas of Africa self-sufficient in manufactured products and less dependent upon the exportation of raw materials. Based upon the manufacture of cloth, cooking oil, and soap from cotton grown by the Azande of the Sudan, the Scheme began in 1945, met with enthusiastic response, but gradually declined and ultimately failed with an inexplicable decline in cotton production. Originally undertaken as a field stury of the Scheme, the project which is the subjectof this book was concerned not only with the economic and anthropological facts of the Scneme's success and failure, but also with the underlying influences of the Sudan's move to independence. The book chronicles the entireperiod of the colonial administration of the Zande District, tracing the r ise of a spirit ot economic development which began late in the colonial period, and which has become stronger with independence."
