After years of economic and social crisis, Zimbabweans went to the polls in March 2008. Defying the Winds of Change reviews the social and economic context of the election, its coverage in the media, its legitimacy, and the consequences of the decision to hold a presidential run-off three months later. The intervening period was marked by the worst violence the country has seen in twenty years; many were killed, hundreds injured, thousands displaced. This is a penetrating analysis of the political turmoil that spawned Zimbabwe's power-sharing government, and laid the foundations for a new political future.
