Biography

Professor Michael Lofchie (b. 1936) went to Zanzibar in 1962-63, first as a graduate student, to study political parties and their conflicts for his dissertation. Immediately after earning his doctorate from UC Berkeley, he returned to Zanzibar as a researcher during the summer of 1964 to do follow-up studies for his book, Zanzibar: Background to Revolution (Princeton University Press) that was published in 1965. The book provides an invaluable foundation for other scholars to assess dynamics of Zanzibar's pre-independence political environment and its implications for post-independence situation. The materials he collected for writing this book constitute the present Michael Lofchie collection of Zanzibar Publications, which he donated to the Department of Special Collection in the late 1960s.
Lofchie received his BA from Harvard University (1958), his MA (1960) and PhD (1964) from UC Berkeley. He has been a professor in the Department of Political Science at UCLA since 1964. He is Former Chair of the Department of Political Science at UCLA and a specialist in comparative politics and African studies. He served as the director of UCLA's James S. Coleman African Studies Center from 1978 to 1989. Professor Lofchie teaches undergraduate and graduate introductions to comparative government, and offers graduate seminars on the political economy of Africa and structural adjustment. His research focuses on the politics of economic reform in Africa. His book, The Policy Factor: Agricultural Performance in Kenya and Tanzania (Lynne Rienner, 1989) explores agricultural policy and urban bias in Kenya and Tanzania. Professor Lofchie's work has become an influential source for scholars and policy makers seeking to understand the dynamics of famine in Africa. He has worked as a consultant to U.S.A.I.D. and World Bank projects.

Scope and Content

The Michael Lofchie Collection includes predominantly pre-independent newspapers from Zanzibar, an island of Tanzania off the coast of East Africa, from 1909-1965. The collection holds about 120 volumes covering 22 titles of newspapers. In addition, the collection includes bulletins, journals or journal reprints/stand-alone articles, monographs, booklets, information sheets and meeting minutes. Languages used include English, Swahili, Gujarati and Arabic.
The depth and breadth of this collection reflect socio-cultural-economic-political environments that ensued in Zanzibar from 1909 to 1965. It reveals class dynamics involving the British protectorate administrators in Zanzibar, the Sultan's reign, the Zanzibari natives, and the Zanzibari of Indian and Arabic descents. The overall content of the collection reveals the power of newspapers not only in independence struggles against colonialism but also the continuation of power struggles and ideological differences among individual political parties that were struggling for independence. The collector was in Zanzibar at the peak of these struggles in the early 1960s when Zanzibar was transitioning to an independent state and subsequently to the 1964 Revolution against the Sultan and then to a union with Tanganyika.
The following selected publications by Dr. Lofchie reflect part of the content and context of this collection:
  • "The Zanzibari Revolution: African Protest in a Racially Plural Society," in Protest and Power in Black Africa , edited by Robert I. Rosberg and Ali Mazrui, pp 924-67. (London and New York: Oxford University Press, 1970).
  • "The Plural Society in Zanzibar," in Pluralism in Africa, edited by Leo Kuper and M.G. Smith, pp 283-328. (University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles, 1969).
  • "Zanzibar," in Political Parties and National Integration in Tropical Africa, edited by James S. Coleman and Carl Rosberg,(Berkeley and Los Angeles: University of California Press, 1964), pp. 475- 508.
  • "Zanzibar: Problems and Prospects," The Commonwealth Journal (Journal of the Royal Commonwealth Society), December 1963) pp. 247-51.
  • "Party Conflict in Zanzibar," Journal of Modern African Studies, 1.2 (June 1963) pp. 185-207.
