Zimbabwe’s Land Reform: Myths and Realities provides the first full account of the actual consequences of these dramatic events. This land reform overturned a century-old pattern of land use, one dominated by a small group of large-scale commercial farmers, many of whom were white. But what replaced it? By challenging a series of myths about Zimbabwe’s land reform, and suggesting alternative policy narratives, the book presents the story as it has been observed on the ground: warts and all. What comes through very strongly is the complexity, the differences, almost farm by farm: there is no single, simple story of the Zimbabwe land reform as sometimes assumed by press reports, political commentators, or indeed much academic study.
