Zimbabwe At The Crossroads
††† The theme of Zimbabwe at the Crossroads is on issues of governance and economic management. The story being told is how a prosperous country at independence in 1980 has virtually turned from a bread basket to a begging bowl.
††† After the success with A Crisis of Governance: Zimbabwe, Dr Jacob Chikuhwa continues the tragic analysis of the Zimbabwean economy. An analysis set against a backdrop of growing poverty in a country with abundant human and natural resources, this book weaves together a cast of socio-economic factors that form the causes of the economic quagmire.
††† This academic exposť brings to the fore the desperate hope for democracy and economic recovery in Zimbabwe. International donor agencies and institutions specialising in African development studies will be delighted with Jacob Chikuhwa’s latest instalment whose driving force is the statistical analysis of events in the southern African country.
