Zimbabwe: Picking up the Pieces

Hany Besada



Zimbabwe: Picking Up the Pieces paints a picture of Zimbabwe’s descent into economic and political turmoil, and lays out the way forward to resuscitate the nation. This volume brings together a variety of perspectives from some of southern Africa’s leading academics and practitioners, looking at issues of peace building and good governance, economic recovery and development, and foreign direct investment and reconstruction.


It is very rare to witness a conversation about the current problems of Zimbabwe, and the solutions thereof, without it degenerating into emotional rhetoric laden with insults. - Adam Habib, Wits University
