Examines the social, political and administrative repercussions of rapid urbanisation in colonial Dar es Salaam, and the evolution of an official policy which viewed urbanisation as inextricably linked with social disorder. This is an original contribution to Tanzanian, and more broadly, African social history; to the scholarship on the colonial state; and to historiography on crime and urbanisation.
