Capitalism and Cloves : An Archaeology of Plantation Life on Nineteenth-Century Zanzibar, Hardback Book

Capitalism and Cloves : An Archaeology of Plantation Life on Nineteenth-Century Zanzibar Hardback

Description

This study of nineteenth-century clove plantations on Zanzibar provides an important contribution to debates in global historical archaeology.

Broadening plantation archaeology beyond the Atlantic World, this work addresses plantations run by Omani Arab colonial rulers of Zanzibar.

Drawing on archaeological and historical data, this book argues for the need to examine non-Western contexts of colonialism and capitalism as coeval with those in the North Atlantic World.

This work explores themes of capitalism, colonialism, plantation landscapes, African Diaspora communities, gender and sexuality, locally produced and imported goods in historic contexts, and Islamic historical archaeology.
