Hopefully This Land Is Ours Now will inform how geographers develop new research into social movements grounded in territories, resources, and land- or sea-based production systems. Overall, the book is a significant addition to the geographical literature on development and social movements. It makes good use of social movement theories and will be a valuable work for geographers who have interests in social movements in Latin America, particularly in rural Brazil.

Inequality of land ownership used to one of the major concerns of the early working class and socialist movements in Britain.

A historical journey through the history of the country's first black lawyers and the founding of what would become the ANC, the book is also testimony to the resilience of the black spirit. It begins with a competent compendium of how the Xhosa loss of land, during the Frontier Wars, marked the beginnings of real land dispossession by the black people. This first part has a few historical inaccuracies that are not fatal to the thesis of the book. I suspect this would be that most challenging part for those without the historical background on the material.
The bulbul sings to the flowers: 'A garden is our land! Come down from the woods to the garden! Like walls of white marble, The mountain peaks enclose A sunny space of emerald green. A garden is our land! The early spring has come again And camped on mountain heights, And tulips blow in Shalamar. The sweet gift of spring To fountains, rivulets, streams And waterfalls is music.
