About this book

Famine and the African food production crisis are generally blamed on competition for land and labour from commercial export farming. The author shows how commercial estates can undermine local farming, and she explains that the problems can only be understood if the notion of the household farming unit is abandoned. In its place she traces the complex intra- and cross-household economic relations that hold a mixed farming system together.
