The Zimbabwe Land Invasions - Catherine Buckle (Politics)
The true story of a white farmer in Zimbabwe living side by side with war veterans for 7 months (2000/1), under constant scrutiny and intimidation. Make-shift homes were erected on the grazing fields and their stock dams and timber plantations were "liberated". The family was left emotionally broken, psychologically crippled and driven to the brink of bankruptcy. They and their farm labourers were harassed and tortured, their livestock killed, their fields roamed by packs of hunting dogs and the farm - eventually burned to the ground. It remains undesignated, unlisted and not required by the government for compulsory acquisition. It chronicles the hardships felt by many Zimbabwean farmers and their families and tells of the destruction of the country's economy, collapse of tourism and ruination of agriculture.
ISBN 1-919874-27-5, 222x152mm, 264pp, 14 b/w photos
