"The Crucible of Cultural Politics: Reworking 'Development' in Zimbabwe's Eastern Highlands"
American Ethnologist, vol. 26, no. 3, 1999, p. 654-689.
"Rather than seeing development as determined by a monolithic and stable discursive formation that forecloses inevitable outcomes, Kaerezi's shiting terrain of struggle points to a politics of contingency and contestation. Far from arriving fully formed, an artifact dispatched by the distant West, the disputed formations of development... are forged through the crucible of cultural politics, reworked through livelihood struggles" (Moore, 1999:675).
