Since the late 1990s, the Mugabe government has pursued a controversial land expropriation policy that has contributed to a sharp and continuing economic decline. GDP declined by 30 per cent from 1998 through 2003, and fell another 5.2 per cent in 2004. Unemployment is estimated at 70 per cent. The adult HIV infection rate of 25 per cent has contributed to a sharp drop in life expectancy.

These subhuman and undemocratic living conditions drove people to the poles in 2005 to finally overthrow Mugabes reign. The papers presented in this book give insight into the situations and events of the years leading up to the highly anticipated 2005 elections.
