Review:

...shatters some conventional wisdom about agricultural strategies and migrant labor.ory, politics, culture, and economy over a century, relating national and regional changes to intimate aspects of daily life. It is not only largely successful in this, but also makes an important methodological and theoretical contribution to understandings of gender and agrarian change. - Melissa Leach in AFRICAN AFFAIRS
Relationships among male labor migration, food production, and household nutrition will be of special interest to development professionals and students of gender relations and environmental management. CHOICE
... the more flowing parts of this book read like Babette's feast. - Patricia Hayes in GENDER & HISTORY

From the Back Cover:

What are the problems of rural food supply in southern Africa today, and how have they arisen historically? This major study of household production, gender, and nutrition traces detailed changes in the agricultural system of Zambia's Northern Province over a period of one hundred years. The authors combine historical, anthropological, and developmental approaches to the study of a rural society undergoing rapid change, and provide a critical reassessment of Audrey Richards' classic work, Land, Labour and Diet: An Economic Study of the Bemba Tribe. The authors assess the ecological, social, and political changes affecting the region, and provide one of the first studies to integrate contemporary development initiatives with long-run interventions. Drawing on their extensive research experience in Africa, Henrietta L. Moore and Megan Vaughan have produced a detailed examination of the changing nature of gender relations and household production. They also draw on recent theoretical developments in anthropology and cultural history to explore the construction of colonial and postcolonial identities in the region. Cutting Down Trees is about local responses to global processes of change. It will be of special interest to anthropologists, historians, and social scientists, as well as those in the fields of development studies, economics, and environmental management.

Book Description James Currey, United Kingdom, 1994. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. What are the problems of rural food supply in southern Africa today and how have they arisen historically? In part this book is a reconstruction of an African agricultural system over one hundred years; in part it is an examination of the construction of knowledge about a rural African people. The first half of the book focuses on the chitemene agricultural system of the Bemba known as slash and burn. The authors show that chitemene involves a great deal more than the cutting and burning of trees. The second half addresses the question of labour migration and its effects on the agricultural production of the area, re-visiting the colonial debate with new evidence. The authors provide a critical re-assessment of Audrey Richards' classic work, Land, Labour and Diet: An Economic Study of the Bemba Tribe and assess the ecological, social and political impact on a rural society undergoing rapid change.
