Overview

Zimbabwe's promise of liberation, democracy, majority rule and renewal has been shattered by executive lawlessness, state-sponsored violence and the military intervention in the DRC. Despite the wretched conditions of millions of Zimbabweans, with thousands dying from the HIV-Aids pandemic, Zimbabwe's rulers have been preoccupied with enriching themselves. This book provides a critical analysis of Zimbabwe beyond the old conceptions of politics. Horace Campbell looks at Zimbabwe's problems today, including the recent state and ruling party violence against citizens, as manifestations of the patriarchal model of liberation. In his exploration and analysis of Zimbabwe's experiences, from the transition to independence, to the crisis ravaging the country today, Campbell reflects on the ideas and practices of the Rhodesian state to demonstrate how the liberation leaders integrated themselves into the old state machinery. Campbell argues that the politics of masculinity and patriarchy are exhausted models of liberation and suggests new models of emancipation based on truth, reconstruction and a break with Eurocentric conceptions of peace, democracy and development.
