Peoples' Spaces and State Spaces: Land and Governance in Mozambique
An advisor and consultant in Mozambique rural communities for nine years, Rosemary Galli combines her considerable insight into Mozambique with her analysis of social history and government in this fascinating new work. Peoples' Space and State Spaces deftly traces the origins of four rural communities in Mozambique and discusses how their development was truncated by local labor demands during both colonial and post-colonial times. These communities' attempts to govern their land, control their communal life, and transform their livelihoods in response to market opportunities are contrasted with the often futile and sometimes tragic actions of the many parties that laid claim to their land. Galli's work is a moving blend of social and political history that narrates Mozambique's troubled past and offers strategies for reanimating local life.
