Title   Blood and soil: land politics and conflict prevention in Zimbabwe and South Africa
Author International Crisis Group
Edition PDF
Published Brussels: ICG
Year 2004-09-17
Pages 221
Serial Africa Report; No.85
Abstract Tensions over land and race, which have already contributed much to Zimbabwe's political and economic collapse, are rising in South Africa as well. New approaches are needed if they are not to push tempers to the boiling point across all southern Africa. This book-length report offers those approaches along with a detailed analysis of the issues. The product of intensive field research with widespread consultations ranging from farm workers to senior government officials, Blood and Soil examines the challenges of land policy and redistribution in both countries and places them within their social, political, economic and historical contexts.
