Zimbabwe's Public Eye

Political Essays (October 1997 - October 1998)

Masipula Sithole



This book is a collection of 50 short but succinct essays which are a contribution to a vibrant debate in the current Zimbabwe political scene published in The Financial Gazette, a leading weekly. These essays are on many topical issues: land, political parties, leadership succession, war veterans, causes of revolutions, coups, constitutional reforms, relations with South Africa, you name it, including Zimbabwe's involvement in Laurent Kabila's Democratic Republic of the Congo.


These essays are comprehensive in scope and incisive in analysis. -- Kwame A. Ninsin, African Journal of Political Science
