Vanguard or vandals : youth, politics, and conflict in Africa( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains a range of original studies on one of the major challenges in Africa today: the controversial role of youth in politics, conflict and rebellious movements. The issue is not only the drafting of child soldiers into insurgent armies or predatory militias, as in Somalia, Sierra Leone or Congo, but, more generally, that of the problematic insertion of large numbers of young people in the socio-economic and political order of post-colonial Africa. Even educated youths are being confronted with a lack of opportunities, blocked social mobility, and despair about the future. African

An ethnography of knowledge : the production of knowledge in Mupfurudzi resettlement scheme, Zimbabwe by Netsayi Noris Mudege( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contributes to academic debates on knowledge. A resettlement area with people resettling from different agro-ecological regions with different knowledge and approaches to agriculture and farming provides a fascinating area to investigate how knowledge is produced and socialised. The fact that the resettlement scheme became a melting pot of different knowledge makes the term 'local' problematic yet farmers still use and produce knowledge that is considered 'local'. Of interest is how the gender dynamics, politics, power, conflicts, resistance, religious beliefs and government policies impact on farming knowledge and on farming in general. This book unravels how local knowledge makes use of scientifically based state organised interventions. The book is of interest to policy makers and anyone involved in development studies."--Jacket
Building the homestead : agriculture, labour and beer in South Africa's Transkei by Patrick MacAllister( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This title was first published in 2001. "This is also a study of rural Xhosa identity and community, and its survival in the face of the overwhelming odds stacked against it by colonialism and apartheid. The maintenance of homestead production can be properly understood only if this wider context is taken into consideration. The analysis is thus directly relevant to current debates about agrarian change, land reform and economic development in South Africa's communal areas, since it shows how some rural Xhosa are able to maintain a sense of community and identity, and of how they are able to harness the socio-cultural resources at their disposal to engage in productive activity, with some success."--BOOK JACKET."--Provided by publisher
