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

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 219 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 )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 109 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."--BOOK JACKET
