An Essay on the Mining Industry in relation to the African RevolutionAnthropology Faculty Publications
Document TypeWhite Paper
AbstractAlthough the quantitative importance of the mineral resources of Africa is generally appreciated, the economic and political consequences of those resources have been inadequately treated in both the scholarly and the more public press. To whom are the mineral resources of Africa important? How is the exploitation of these minerals controlled? Has the "African revolution" or the "winds of change" affected the industry? What are the prospects for the future?
