Abstract

Three years ago, the plan to federate Uganda, Kenya and Tanganyika into a single political system not only seemed to be a realistic one, but it was expected to be implemented without delay and with relatively few difficulties. It was somehow assumed - not only by Pan-Africanists but by others as well - that an East African federation was a progressive step and thus it came as a disappointment that by the end of 1963 the negotiations had come to a standstill and the project had to be shelved indefinitely. Mr. Nye's book, covering the events up to the end of 1963, attempts to explain the background and the conditions of the failure to federate and in doing so, also to evaluate the peculiar role played by the factors of ideology. On the positive side, the area had formed a more or less integrated unit in terms of economic and social integration and Mr. Nye gives a concise account of the various factors, including the common services, the common market, etc. By no means all these elements were favourable for federation, but given the necessary impetus of political will and national interest, they could have provided the desired
