Pauline E. Peters shows how Africa's current grazing-land policy, like the water-development policies of the 1930s, is part of a historical process through which resources are allocated, wealth created or destroyed, and some interests promoted at the cost of others. At the heart of the dividing of the common range are struggles over meanings, cultural contestations over the definitions of property, and the priority of rights.
