Tinashe Kondo’s book, Law and investment in Africa, narrates the efforts of a country to regain the trust [and the love] of foreign investors after several decades of argument and hostility. Encapsulated in the 'Zimbabwe is open for business' slogan, these efforts show 'how a country can move to regain credibility and commit to global rules despite its recent history'. This review of Kondo’s book concerns the manner in which readers can take advantage of this immensely useful publication. In particular, this review looks into the book in order to advise law academics on possible strategies to integrate the book into their curricula in Zimbabwe and elsewhere on the continent.
