Abstract

Zimbabwe's Prospects: Issues of Race, Class, State and Capital in Southem Africa is an excellent collection of 21 essays that incorporate a holistic framework for examining the post-independence situation and prospects for progress on the economic, social, political, and ideological fronts. The contributors are particularly well qualified, the majority being academicians and civil servants from Zimbabwe. Two themes are prevalent throughout the volume. The first concerns the extent to which a 'Zimbabwean model' exists, and the degree to which it can be a prototype for future development in the country and elsewhere. The second theme concerns the projection of the rather pessimistic outlook taken by the majority of the contributors. The prospects for development are said to be closely linked to the removal of a number of major restraints, including the class forces at work and the future of South Africa. [Bret L. Billet]
