Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book explores the outer margins of postcolonial culture, state, and economy, where the legacy of white settler modernity still dominates the everyday lives of a largely neglected population. The book is an ethnographic analysis which focuses on more than two million people who live and work on predominantly white-owned farms in Zimbabwe--almost a fifth of the national population. Blair Rutherford traces their lives from the colonial past to the present, while analyzing the flue-cured tobacco farms which produce Zimbabwe's number one export.

About the Author

Blair Rutherford is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Regina, Canada.
