Details

Tourism and Social Change in Post-Socialist Zanzibar examines how Zanzibaris are struggling to move through the local landscape in the post-socialist era dominated by tourism. Using the theoretical framework of movement, this book highlights how Zanzibaris move and develop various dispositions to re-articulate their identities. This book also investigates how notions of ustaarabu, a word expressing “civilization” in Zanzibar, are being re-conceptualized and shaped by emerging forces of globalization, secularism, and mass consumption.
