This project seeks to replicate what the INCHOS project has achieved for Eurasia and North America by producing a monograph, tentatively titled: Occupational Structure and Economic Development in sub-Saharan Africa since 1850, to be edited by Gareth Austin (Cambridge) and Leigh Shaw-Taylor (Cambridge).
