Review:

"Duggan's book is an economic history of Southern African agriculture, covering the period 1800 to 1980. His research centered upon parts of present-day Union of South Africa and Botswana. The book is not a comprehensive study of the region, but it presents themes that are presumed valid for the entire area. The major themes addressed: that the indigenious African agricultural system was well suited to conditions in the 19th century but did not adapt to the requirements of modern agriculture of the 20th century; that there was official preference for private land ownership over common rights to farmland leading to enclosure of the commons; and, that official agricultural policy was based on technical, not racial, considerations. The book provides much detail about agricultural practices in Southern Africa. The general history of the region is a little brief. The book uses a neoclassical microeconomic approach that the author considers equally appropriate for noncapitalist and nonmonetary systems as for capitalist systems. This is in contrast to most African economic historians who prefer a Marxist labor theory of value approach. The book is based on fieldwork and primary and secondary sources. Well footnoted; extensive bibliography. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students." -- Choice
