Early in 2005 the Senate of the Open University of Tanzania approved a proposal from the faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to launch a course on the political history of Zanzibar. This decision was prompted by a number of reasons, both academic as well as political. In the first instance there were expectations that a course focused on Zanzibar would provide an academic forum for further exploration of the history of Zanzibar thus contributing significantly towards our understanding of a more coherent history of Tanzania. Until now the histories of the two integral parts of the United Republic have tended to be treated separately with little attempt to highlight similarities and account for differences in historical experience of the communities which live in the two parts of the Union.
