Présentation éditeur :

« This book offers a view of shifts in labour relations in various parts of the world over a breathtaking span, from 1500 to 2000, with a particular emphasis on colonial institutions. How did growing demand for colonial commodities affect labour in the Global South ? How did colonial interference with land and labour markets affect developments in labour relations ? And what were the effects of the introduction of colonial currencies ? The contributors to this volume answer those questions and more, combining global perspectives with impressively detailed case studies. »
