Book Review: Zimbabwe Takes Back its Land

Zim_takesbackitslandToday the book Zimbabwe Takes Back its Land arrived all the way from Kumarian Press in Virginia. Joseph Hanlon, Jeanette Manjengwa and Teresa Smart claim to do away with some of the myths about the “fast track” land reform after 2000 in the Southern African country, such as that productivity has fallen and that only the elite profited.

If this is really the case and how they describe the fate of farmworkers – in my opinion the most severly affected group – I will explicate in a review due to be published by Konkret in July and later in English at this blog.
