Omtale Assembling Export Markets - the Making and Unmaking of Global Food Connections in West Africa
Assembling Export Markets explores the new frontier regions of the global fresh produce market that has emerged in Ghana over the past decade. * Represents a major and empirically rich contribution to the emerging field of the social studies of economization and marketization * Offers one of the first ethnographic accounts on the making of global commodity chains from below * Denaturalizes global markets by unpacking their local engagement, materially entangled construction, need for maintenance, and fragile character * Offers a trans-disciplinary engagement with the construction and extension of market relations in two frontier regions of global capitalism * Critically examines the opportunities and risks for firms and farms in Ghana entering global fresh produce markets
