Decolonization and African Society: The Labor Question in French and British Africa

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Aug 28, 1996 - History - 677 pages
This detailed and authoritative volume changes our conceptions of "imperial" and "African" history. Frederick Cooper gathers a vast range of archival sources in French and English to achieve a truly comparative study of colonial policy towards the recruitment, control, institutionalization of African labor forces from the mid-1930s, when the labor question was first posed, to the late 1950s, when decolonization was well under way.
