Abstract:The Review of African Political Economy (ROAPE) publishes this special issue in tribute to Lionel Cliffe, following his death in October 2013. Most of the articles were first presented as papers at a Colloquium that took place in October 2014, organised by Lionel's colleagues and friends at the Universities of the Western Cape and of Cape Town and supported by this journal, along with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation and the University of Leeds. The Colloquium's title of 'Land, liberation and democracy in Africa' reflected the three main areas of Lionel's lifetime work. Contributions: Land, liberation and democracy: the life and work of Lionel Cliffe (Peter Lawrence); Lionel Cliffe: the politically engaged intellectual worker (Mike Powell); Village land politics and the legacy of ujamaa (Elisa Greco); Cotton and textiles industries in Tanzania: the failures of liberalization (Andrew Coulson); Reflections on land policy and the independence settlement in Kenya (Brian Van Arkadie); Agrarian transformation in the Near East and North Africa: influences from the work of Lionel Cliffe (Ray Bush); Old wine in new bottles? Revisiting contract farming after agrarian reform in Zimbabwe (Lloyd Sachikonye); 'I am a paramount chief, this land belongs to my ancestors': the reconfiguration of rural authority after Zimbabwe's land reforms (Grasian Mkodzongi); Analysing the history of agrarian struggles in Tanzania from a feminist perspective (Marjorie Mbilinyi); The importance of land in rethinking rural transformation, agrarian revolution and unfinished liberation in Africa (Nancy Andrew); The ZIPA moment: Dzino, Mugabe and Samora Machel (John S. Saul); Lionel Cliffe and the generation(s) of Zimbabwean politics (David Moore). [ASC Leiden abstract]
