Death and the Textile Industry in Nigeria

Elisha Renne
London: Routledge

This book draws upon thinking about the work of the dead in the context of deindustrialization – specifically, the decline of the textile industry in Kaduna, Nigeria – and its consequences for deceased workers’ families. The book examines the establishment of textile mills in the industrial area and new ways of thinking about work and labor organization, time regimens, and health, particularly occupational ailments documented in mill clinic records. Available from Routledge Books website ($128.00, hbk), three open access chapters (Introduction, Chapter 2, Conclusion)
