Summary
"This book takes a challenging ethnographic and historical look at the politics of eco-development in the Zimbabwe-Mozambique border zone. David Hughes argues that European colonization in southern Africa - essentially an unsuccessful effort to turn the region into another North America or Australia - has profoundly reshaped rural politics and culture and continues to do so to this day, as neoliberal developers commoditize the lands of African peasants in the name of conservation and economic progress."--Jacket
