Willing Migrants : Soninke Labor Diasporas, 1848-1960 Paperback / softback
Part of the Western African Studies series
The first major study of the Soninke labor migration within Africa and to France, Willing Migrants is based upon a critical analysis of French precolonial and colonial records and interviews with Soninke migrants.
Francois Manchuelle shows that these migrations were driven by a search for improved economic options and that these labor movements have a great deal in common with European and American migrations.
