However, this leader has certainly made it worse. And many of its present problems (inflation, land redistribution, economic mismanagement) can be placed pretty squarely on his head, not the Brits.
Actually, with the exception of land redistribution, most of the problems Zimbabwe has are a result of British rule and/or structural adjustment at the end of the cold war.
There are some good google scholar articles about it, but I am way too lazy to go find them right now.
The debate in this thread really should cease until people read The World and a Very Small Place in Africa. Thanks.
