It examines the resulting relationship between two sections of society and how they affect policy decisions and development in the developing world. The tome reviews Gramsci’s theory of hegemony in order to examine the relationship between civil society and politics, and secondly, to examine the socio-political determinants that lead to the politicization of civil society on the basis of counter-hegemonic politics in Zimbabwe and thirdly to determine the impact of CSO-politics relations on development processes. The book uses independent Zimbabwe as an entry point to understanding its politically deficient polity characterized by varying state-civil society relations and stalled development.
