The very different cotton production schemes that the state introduced in Mozambique are explored. Three distinct periods are examined. The focus is on the impact of cotton cultivation on the daily lives of peasants trapped in a highly coercitive labor regime. An outline of the abortive attempt of the FRELIMO government to revitalize cotton production is given next. The study is concluded with a discussion of recent state efforts to promote joint cotton ventures. A wide set of issues in the sustainability debate are explored
