Moore has been trying to figure out Zimbabwean politics at least since the mid-1980s when he was carrying out research on the complexities of the liberation war for his doctorate. He has been writing on Zimbabwean history and politics ever since. More abstractly, he also writes on development theory.

His new book Mugabe’s Legacy: Coups, Conspiracies, and the Conceits of Power in Zimbabwe, was released in mid-2022.
