  • Introduction
    • Abstract: The question of African economic history, and its relationship to colonial history and external economic pressures, has been one of the key elements of historical scholarship on Africa since the rise of “African studies” as a discipline in the 1960s. Throughout all that period of time, questions of “development” and “underdevelopment” as they relate to colonial economic history have never been far away.To many readers of this journal, these debates will be perhaps almost overfamiliar; with little “new” to be said about questions such as the formalism/substantivism debate, dependency theory and the rise of “agency” as a trope to challenge it, and questions of development and underdevelopment having characterised ...

  • Economy and Health in the Gold Coast, 1902–1957
    • Abstract: The partition of Africa as an outcome of the Berlin Conference of 1884–85 placed the Gold Coast under British Imperial Rule. Though the British had formally succeeded through treaties and conquest in colonizing the present region of Ghana, other European states like Portugal, Denmark, Netherlands and Germany also made some earlier contacts with areas such as Elmina, Keta and Accra.1 These European colonial contacts influenced the social, economic, political and to a large extent the cultural institutions of the people of the Gold Coast. Among the reasons why most European states contacted the regions of Africa was economic. This was either to trade in lucrative natural resources or develop them for their stay ... Read More

  • The Economic Potentials of Northern Ghana: The Ambivalence of the Colonial
           and Post-Colonial States to Develop the North
    • Abstract: The first decade of the twentieth century saw the acquisition of new territories in Africa by Western imperial powers. The administration of these imperial polities produced contrasting results.1 Colonialism, Partha Chat-terjee has argued, was based on the rule of difference.2 The rule of difference allowed the British imperial power to present the “other as radically different, and hence incorrigibly inferior.”3 Difference was woven into the building of institutions, for exploring and exploiting resources, and for categorizing ethnic communities. The outcomes were contradictory policy positions, and ambivalence when it delivering to economic development.The British incorporated three zones to form the nucleus of ... Read More

  • Migration and the Production of Informal Economies in the Gold Coast
    • Abstract: This study makes an attempt to address key questions which arise from the study of migration and labor in the colonial period. Paramount to this is the issue of alternative employment to formal sector employment in the wake of increased migration and urbanization in this period. A blend of archival materials and secondary sources are the sources of information backing the presentation and analysis.Immigration in West Africa (internal and international) witnessed a phenomenal increase with the onset of formal colonial rule. In the early years of European advent, contact with the indigenous people was limited largely to the littoral and the coastal peoples, and the general impact of the European presence was quite ...

  • “Help Us Balance Our Budget”: Chiefs as Economic Agents in Colonial
           Gambia: 1900–1950
    • Abstract: This article shall further our understanding of the critical African agency in the success of the colonial project in West Africa. Truly, the literature on any aspect of Gambian history is still in infancy due largely to the very late advancement of educational opportunities compared to other former British colonies in West Africa, such as Ghana and Nigeria. Also, dictator Yahya Jammeh who ruled the former British Colony, from 1994–2016, had a very severe response to any form of research such that local and outside scholars could not undertake much field or archival work for fear of harassment.1The earliest works on Gambian history were indeed by typically Eurocentric scholar/officials such as the Gambia Colony ...

  • “Strange Farmers” and the Development of The Gambia’s
           Peanut Trade
    • Abstract: The fate of The Gambia, West Africa’s tiny ex-British colony, and its economy has been curiously tied to the cultivation and export of peanuts. This monocrop dependency persists to this day. Although there have been efforts at diversification into rice production, fisheries, and tourism, peanuts continue to assume the role of “king”. No less important to the production of peanuts (in British, “groundnuts”) have been the pool of migrant laborers (known in Wolof as “Nawetane” or in Mandinka as “Sama Manila”) and more colorfully referred to as “Strange Farmers” (since they are strangers to their farming areas) who come to Gambia’s shores from neighboring countries to provide a seasonal pool of badly needed labor.
