Crossroads Books republished the Arusha Declaration in 2007 (its 40th Anniversary) – speeches made on that occasion by Selma James and Madaraka Nyerere here. A further edition is planned which includes Socialism and Rural Development, which it is said was part of the Arusha Declaration.

A LONDON group of publishers yesterday re-launched the Arusha Declaration as one of the key documents for the emancipation of man in the 20th century.
Mwalimu’s son, Madaraka is in London for the event and has been invited by the publisher, Mrs Selma James, who, with her husband, CLR James, was active in the movement for independence and federation in the Caribbean, which drew many lessons from the struggle in Africa.
