Product Overview

A pioneering study of the social aspects of industrialisation in a developing country in tropical Africa. Though industrial workers form a relatively small proportion of the Ghanaian population, they represent the modern sector of the economy and industrial jobs are much sought after by school leavers. The occupational and migration histories, the work and home lives of these men and women are examined in the framework of current theories of modernity to demonstrate the effects of industrialisation in those countries where the process has not yet gone very far. This book surveys the field of industrialisation in Ghana and its effects through such other factors as migration. It provides a valuable comparison both with industrialisation elsewhere and with other aspects of African social life. *Author: Peil, Margaret *Series Title: African Studies African Studies *Series Number: 5 *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 272 *Publication Date: 2009/01/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.61 inches
