New Book: Zimbabwe takes back its land


By Joseph Hanlon, Jeanette Manjengwa, and Teresa Smart


When 170,000 black farmers occupied 4,000 white farms in Zimbabwe in 2000, it caused world-wide shockwaves. A decade later, Zimbabwe Takes Back Its Land finds that the new farmers are doing relatively well, improving their lives and becoming increasingly productive, especially since the US dollar became the local currency.

Book launch & drink: Thursday 31 January 2013, 1700, Chatham House, Royal Institute of International Affairs, with Sir Malcolm Rifkind, MP, Former UK Defence Secretary & Foreign Secretary. The meeting is open, but Chatham House requires pre-registration.
