About this book

Efforts to change the race-based systems of land ownership and land tenure in Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe have pushed land issues to the forefront of social and economic discourses in Africa. This collection examines the broader context of the reemergence of land reform and resource conflicts. The case studies examine the links between identity maintenance, tenurial changes, state intervention and forms and modes of conflict. The authors emphasize the need for a deeper understanding of local histories, cultures and motivations if efforts to attain a more just distribution of resources are to succeed.
