Abstract:This paper analyses the significance of peasant differentiation in understanding Zambia's rural politics. The central argument is that, although factors such as ethnicity and the level of political organization were important in determining how various peasant communities responded to party politics, these factors alone cannot explain fully the nature of peasant participation in nationalist politics in Zambia. This paper examines how economic changes taking place within peasant communities were reflected in diverse patterns of political support. - Notes, tab.
