The analysis ranges from the occupation of the area by Matabele immigrants, to the rise of nationalist feeling and conflicts with the Rhodesian government, to the repression of the areas inhabitants by the government forces of Prime Minister Robert Mugabe. Based on extensive archival research and numerous interviews, Violence and Memory provides a much needed corrective to much of the post-independence historical writing that has focused on Mashonaland.
