520    This book explores the changing land relations in the peri
       -urban villages of Blantyre in Malawi. It questions and 
       debates how and why the peri-urban villages have become 
       the locus of the selling and buying of customary land, the
       practices and also the relations involved. The book 
       provides rich ethnographic insights on the commodification
       of land relations, custom, practices, disputes and social 
       relations between land sellers, land buyers, traditional 
       leaders, and intermediaries. The transactions draw 
       strength from the growing peri-urbanization and 
       monetization of social relations, both of which push 
       towards land decisions at family and individual levels. 
       Bigger groups like the village, clan or extended family 
       have minimal, if not symbolic role only. Village headmen 
       benefit materially by taking gifts (signing fee) 
       rationalized by custom on reciprocity, while estate agents
       claim commission. Numerous constraints are negotiated 
       about the ownership, rights to sale, multiple selling and 
       the use and sharing of land money. Peri-urban land 
       transactions offer scope for examining a wider range of 
       social and economic relations, and the subtle ways in 
       which the state infiltrates the everyday lives of actors. 
       Overtime, the practices reproduce but also transform land 
       relations in significant but less appreciated ways.
