About this book


This book explores why, a decade after Zimbabwean independence, government agricultural development policies still retains surprising similarities with those of the colonial period despite lengthy peasant opposition. Using documentary and fieldwork material from the Midlands province, the analysis covers the subjects of pastoral and land use management, household production and income-earning strategies, and farmer-extension relations.
