Review:

"Isaacman provides both a wrenchingly detailed chronicle of the brutal monotony of the forced cotton regime, and a lucid and illuminating analysis of its contradictions.... This is an important contribution to the historiography of colonialism, labor, resistance, and agrarian change in Africa."-Sara Berry, Northwestern University ?Isaacman provides both a wrenchingly detailed chronicle of the brutal monotony of the forced cotton regime, and a lucid and illuminating analysis of its contradictions....
