Format: Paperback
Manji comes at Africa's 'Land Question' from a legal perspective, arguing that the debate has too often been dominated by the de Soto 'legal centralist' paradigm, and Manji makes the point convincingly that what is really needed in Africa is 'more land, not more law'. Her critique of neo-liberal policy on Land is nuanced and a useful addition to the wider literature of Africa's experiences of neo-liberalism.

Her 'Feminist Legal Pluralism' addresses critically women-led responses to land dispossession in sub-Saharan Africa and she expertly outlines how 'legal centralism' and state-focused analyses of Land in Africa, enforce gender inequality and unequal access to land.

Highly recommended for anyone looking to tackle Africa's 'Land Question', and wanting to take on the de Soto-ites of the World Bank!
