Kigezi, a district in south-western Uganda, has proved itself to be an area of exceptionality in many ways. In contrast to many other parts of the colonial world this district did not adopt cash crops, successfully adopted soil conservation practices, and had a remarkably developed and individualised land market. This book presents a comprehensive study of livelihoods in Kigezi. Its findings are particularly exciting for all those involved in the ongoing key debates in natural resource management and environmental history. Following the lead of groundbreaking studies by Tiffen, Fairhead and Leach, this case study pushes this debate forward, exploring how the political economy of land and labour has been transformed alongside a more positive environmental story. GRACE CARSWELL is a Lecturer in Geography at Sussex University Published in association with the British Institute in Eastern Africa North America: Ohio U Press: Uganda: Fountain Publishers
