The Land Question in Zimbabwe
MetadataShow full item record
The question of the redistribution of land in Zimbabwe has been receiving increasing attention during the last few years, but many of the suggestions made in this connection do not provide a satisfactory solution to a state of affairs which all but a few agree exists - namely, that the tribal area is overpopulated. The reason is that the problem is defined and referred to as a land-use or land distribution problem, and that discussion of the relative merits of rural development models is obscuring the fundamental issue. In reality the question is a population distribution problem.
