The Land Reform Deception

Political Opportunism in Zimbabwe's Land Seizure Era

Charles Laurie

  • Makes the compelling argument that the idea of 'land reform' associated with the land seizure era is a deception.
  • Draws from a substantial set of original data, including interviews with farmers and government officials, as well as surveys.
  • Presents evidence that shows why black farm workers were more aggressively targeted than white farmers, when farmers were ostensibly the major target of farm invaders.
