Beschreibung

The papers presented in this collection offer a wide range of cases, from Asia, Africa and the Americas, and broadly cover the last two centuries, in which commodities have led to the consolidation of a globalised economy and society forging this out of distinctive local experiences of cultivation and production, and regional circuits of trade.
