Permanent Way. Volume II: the Story of the Tanganyika Railways
By M. F. Hill
East African Railways and Harbours, 1960, 295 pp

This is a companion volume to "The Story of the Kenya and Uganda Railway," both written by the editor of the Kenya Weekly News. They are much more than a history of the railways; they describe the economic development of the region and throw light on the political march of events there, from the days of the great Arab ruler, Seyyid Said, through the period of German rule, the two world wars and down to the present.
