Item description for Trade and Traders: The making of the cattle market in Benin by Paul Quarles Vaan Ufford & P. Quarles van Ufford...
Until now the West African cattle trade has been little documented, yet its economic importance, traditional mode of organization and the vast area it covers, place it among the most intriguing trading systems in West Africa. This book examines the cattle trade in the Republic of Benin and neighbouring countries from a West African perspective and makes a significant contribution to the understanding of the strategies of the traders and how the trade functions.
By combining economics, geography and anthropology, the author demonstrates how the West African cattle traders use their economic, social and ideological capital to 'make their market'.
