The Land question in Zimbabwe has generated a lot of heated controversy all over the world. It has assumed an international dimension. The Land reform that the government of Zimbabwe is pursuing has become also a site of conflict and contention between Western liberal notions of democracy and human rights and those of Zimbabwe's hard core Liberation fighters, who see the government's Fast Track Land Reform program as an integral and indispensable process to complete the Zimbabwean liberation project, which started with the struggle for independence. This book makes a fresh look at the land question in Zimbabwe and explores the interface between land reform and human rights. It also explores critically the weaknesses and strengthens of the government of Zimbabwe's land reform program and makes recommendations of the direction that land reform ought to take in Zimbabwe and elsewhere in Africa. In the last chapter the book attempts to make an objective evaluation of the land reform program in Zimbabwe. The book is very useful to anyone interested in understanding how the Land question in Zimbabwe started and how it has developed over the years. It is also useful to lecturers and students involved in studying the subject of Land reform. It is perhaps the first book that attempts to make a serious analysis of landlessness as a human rights issue.
