Tanganyika’s special status as a UN Trust Territory was a decisive factor
in the timing, method and manner in which it became independent. This study
investigates the interaction between Tanganyikan Africans, Great Britain
and the UN in this process, and how the Africans exploited this status by
means of petitions and manipulation of UN Visiting Missions. It provides
unique insight into the UN’s role in dismantling colonial empires, Great
Britain’s history as a colonial power and the development of political
consciousness of modern Africans in a colonial and international context.
