摘要

Becoming Zimbabwe: A history from the pre-colonial period to 2008

Brian Raftopoulos and Alois Mlambo (eds), Weaver Press

Becoming Zimbabwe is an essential introduction to the history and complexity of Zimbabwean political economy and society. Its coverage of the period from 850 to 2008 provides a rich introduction to nation formation and notions of citizenship in the country. It builds a narrative from the pre-colonial period, through to the Unilateral Declaration of Independence by the white settlers, the war for liberation, and the dashed hopes of the new Zimbabwe.

Robert Mugabe: A life of power and violence

Stephen Chan, University of Michigan Press

Chan provides an insightful account of the rise of Robert Mugabe, documenting the rise of a national liberation figure who quickly gained a stranglehold on Zimbabwean politics. Chan builds an image of a self-righteous man, driven by conviction and a determination to hold on to power.

Morgan Tsvangirai, At the Deep End

Eye Books

Joshua Nkomo, The Story of My Life

Methuen

In these two autobiographies, two political adversaries of Mugabe document their battles with the president. Nkomo wrote in London in exile in the early 1980s, and the story stops short of his return to Zimbabwe to unite his party into ZANU, and take up the position of vice president. Tsvangirai’s includes a first-hand account of the negotiations around the power-sharing agreement that led to the 2008 government of national unity.

Zimbabwe Land Reform: Myths and Realities

Ian Scoones et al, Boydell & Brewer

Land reform in Zimbabwe remains a highly emotive issue. The controversy, which fast-tracked the transition of land away from a white minority, has led to a number of myths. Scoones challenges these assumptions and presents a complex picture of a changing rural Zimbabwe and the potential for advancing the agricultural sector.

The House of Hunger

Dambudzo Marechera, Heinemann

Zimbabwe has produced some of the continent’s most significant English literary writers, and there is a great body of literature from the country to explore. Marechera’s The House of Hunger deals with life in Ian Smith’s Rhodesia, while reflecting on a deeper emerging national consciousness. Ideal for those seeking to be challenged or shocked by their next read!
