This work examines people's beliefs, ideas and experiences both during Zimbabwe's liberation war and afterwards. The contributors look at African religion and Christianity and explore the efforts to educate people for a new society. They also look at the ideas used by whites to justify brutality and at the civilian experiences at the hands of the guerillas and the Fifth Brigade. Finally, they ask whether the new ideas were carried on after the war had ended. Zimbabwe: University of Zimbabwe Publications

These volumes provide signposts for researchers to begin to ask new questions about the events of the wars. - Diane Jeater in JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY These two volumes represent the most important critical collection of work on the liberation struggle in Zimbabwe. The range of the studies provides an impressive overview of the complex responses of various social forces to the liberation war... - Brian Raftopoulos in JOURNAL OF SOUTHERN AFRICAN STUDIES The impressive number and quality of these local level studies, many part of larger works, add to existing conflicting and consensual claims about the war and its aftermath, making a review of a now sizeable literature timely. - Norma Kriger in JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY Like Volume I, this volume is a milestone in recording the history of the liberation war...The revelation of the horrors is a part of the balm that heals the wounds of both the victim and the perpetrator. They set directions for future writers on the painful genesis of Zimbabwe. - Charles Pfukwa in the INDEPENDENT WEEKENDER
