Synopsis: Efforts to change the race-based systems of land ownership and land tenure in Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe have pushed land issues to the forefront of social and economic discourses in Africa. This collection examines the broader context of the re-emergence of land reform and resource conflicts. The case studies examine the links between identity maintenance, tenurial changes, state intervention and forms and modes of conflict. The contributors emphasize the need for a deeper understanding of local histories, cultures and motivations if efforts to attain a more just distribution of resources are to succeed. Contributors include: KOJO AMANOR on Ghana; QUENTIN GAUSSET on Cameroon; KJERSTI LARSEN on the Sudan; CAMILLA TOULMIN on West Africa; POUL WISBORG on a Namaqualand communal area; NANCY ANDREW on South Africa; STEN HAGBERG on Burkina Faso; BILL DERMAN & ANN HELLUM on Zimbabwe; FAUSTIN MAGANGA, RIE ODGAARD & ESPEN SJAASTAD on Tanzania; KAREN WITSENBURG & ADANO WARIO ROBA on Kenya. North America: Michigan State U Press; South Africa: University of KwaZulu-Natal Press
