Researching Tanzanian Law: Books


To find an item in Loyola's collection that is not listed at right, please use Loyola's online catalog.  Some suggested Library of Congress Subject Headings for titles on Tanzanian law are: 


Rule of Law--Tanzania

Human Rights--Tanzania

Judicial Process--Tanzania

Justice, Administration of--Tanzania

Tanzania--Politics and Government

Note that some general books on African law and politics may contain information on Tanzania.  The term "Africa" may be substituted for "Tanzania" in the above-listed Subject Headings to locate these titles. To find books in libraries outside the Loyola University Chicago system, use the WorldCat database.  Loyola Chicago Law School patrons should use ILLiad to request materials from non-Loyola libraries. 




WWW Book Repositories

There are several Web-based initiatives that serve as online repositories for books:

HathiTrust:  HathiTrust is a partnership of over 50 major research institutions and libraries. Works that are in the public domain contained in the HathiTrust database are available to all researchers. Many search options are offered, including full-text.

Google Books:  Books contained in Google Books come from two sources:  1)  The Library Project and 2)  The Partner Program.  Books included from the partnered Library Project that are no longer in copyright may be viewed in full text, while only snippets of books still in copyright are available.  Only previews of books are available through the Partner Program.

International Comparative Legal Guides

The UK-based Global Legal Group Limited publishes an "International Comparative Legal Guide Series," with each title covering multiple jurisdictions, with each chapter dedicated to one country; Tanzania is included in the guide on employment and labor law. Local law firms generally author the chapters, which are in Q & A format.
