Abstract:Both T. Ranger and the present author examined peasant mobilization and participation in the guerrilla war in Shona-speaking districts in Zimbabwe. The descriptive material produced by both authors on the war period is remarkably similar. Nevertheless the interpretations are different. In this paper it is argued that these differences may be traced to different central concepts and methodological approaches. The paper starts with a synopsis of RANGER's book 'Peasant consciousness and guerrilla war in Zimbabwe' (1985). Then it identifies two major areas in which the authors disagree. The discussion of conceptual and methodological issues and interpretative differences leads to the conclusion that Ranger's peasant consciousness concept is too limited to issues of class resistance against State intervention in agricultural production.
