- Publisher's Summary
- From infrastructural problems to a depreciating currency, this collection of essays examines the Zimbabwean people's struggle to survive through a historic series of socioeconomic crises. The book explores not only their resilience in the face of censorship, rapid militarism, disease, and economic instability, but also how they have employed social media as a tool to fight against these issues. Thorough and hard-hitting, this study is an invaluable guide to Zimbabwe's history of crisis, corruption, migration, and survival.
