Zambia is a country whose history has been defined by the discovery of mineral wealth, which gave birth to the copper mining industry in the early 1900's. Given the economic significance of the copper mining industry in Zambia, it has undergone drastic reforms, including nationalisation, liberalisation an dreprivatisation.

The story told here provides a candid look at the players involved behind the scenes during the reprivatisation period. It unmasks the roles played by government leaders, multinational corporations and other foreign investors, multilateral financial institutions, donors, the press and some of the local professionals and consultants who were key to the negotiating process.
