Product Description

Review

"This book provides a panoramic assessment of the land question in Zimbabwe over the last century, tracing how European settler land grabbing and farming was built through state subsidies and protection against black peasants and external markets. It examines how land reform since 1980 has reversed this trajectory of land ownership and agrarian development, and provided live narratives on the struggles of various classes of people to secure land and farm inputs, and gain access to markets, while revealing their hopes and pride as new farmers. Although it is critical about various deficiencies of the fast track land reform process and the subsequent agrarian reforms, it represents one of the few comprehensive renditions of the multi-faceted progressive outcomes of these reforms, which bring life to the social transformation underway and the challenges that remain. The authors combine various research approaches in their investigation and a laud writing style, with an extensive reading of the relevant literature cutting across the ideological and political divide of the narratives, before independence and since 2000. It is a must read for scholars and lay people alike."

Format: Paperback
A lightweight piece that was not worth the money to buy nor the time read. This was so far from reality that it's hard to ascribe any value to it whatsoever. If you enjoy fiction you could read this, but there again..

Format: Paperback
I bought this book as I had lived most of my life in Zimbabwe and was still living there in 2000 when they started taking the farms I am still in contact with many friends who are still in the country and was interested to learn what the outcome of the exercise was.I was therefore shocked at the blatent lies that were printed in this book, it amazed me how these authors could use as an example three farms from the 5300 farms that were actualy taken in Zimbabwe to say that the exercise had been a success - This book was not supposedly written as a piece of fiction even though what is written in it is complete fiction, so is therefore very misleading to anyone who is interested in what is really happening in Zimbabwe - I would not recommend this book to anyone

Surprisingly I was the first to write a review of this book. My review has now been removed! Probably because it was even more critical than the present one.
This book is a complete work of fiction and I suggest that the author has never been to Zimbabwe, where I lived for 25 years and he has no idea of the real situation in that unfortunate country.
What did happen to my review? Was it too critical? Do we not include reviews that are not favourable to to the wishes of the author? Jim O'Toole, Devon
