The book was launched in Harare (hosted by Ruzivo Trust), London (hosted by the Royal African Society), the Hague (hosted by ISS) and South Africa (hosted by PLAAS) during late 2010 and early 2011.

The London launch presentation text and audio excerpts provide an overview. More details and commentaries were captured in videos of the London launch, a recording of the South Africa launch, a presentation for the Hague launch and blogs of the London and South African launches, and a photo gallery of the South African and Masvingo field site launches.
