Helliker); Land reform and marginalised communities in the Eastern Cape countryside of post-apartheid South Africa (K. Helliker); Social mobilisation of farm workers and dwellers in the Eastern Cape (South Africa) (L. Naidoo); Lacuna in rural agency: the case of Zimbabwe's agrarian reforms (T. Murisa); The Hai||om and Etosha: a case study of resettlement in Namibia (the San Development Project) (U. Dieckmann); Genesis and role of the peasant movement in Mozambique (D. Nhampossa); Winners and losers in land reforms in Botswana: the case of Ngamiland and Kgalagadi Districts (L.Magole, J.E. Mbaiwa); Land reform in Zambia and civil society experiences (H. Machina, C.
