Urban Evolution Harare

A Photographic History

Jonathan Waters



With over 1000 historical and contemporary photographs of Harare, this book charts the history of Zimbabwe's capital from its establishment in 1890 to present. It is the first major work on the city's history in nearly three decades, and captures much of the development after independence.


This is an excellent book, just shy of being definitive because of its lack of index and clearer source references for the commentaries and anecdotes. - Dr Robert Challiss, Harare News


Jonathan Waters was born in Harare in 1969 and has previously worked as a journalist in Australia, England, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
