Omtale: Assembling Export Markets
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
