Abstract

In Mediators, Contract Men and Colonial Capital: Mechanized Gold Mining in the Gold Coast Colony, 1879-1909, Cassandra Mark-Thiesen illuminates the dynamic interaction between capital, labour and industry during the initial phase of colonialism in the Gold Coast (1870s-1900s). Henry Brefo praises the book for digging up a rich historical archive that enriches our understanding of labour relations in this period.
