Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled Land, Labour and Entrustment contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, list of figures, list of tables, glossary of main mandinka terms and a chronology of political events. Throughout the book, there are clear links between group membership, local social identities and hierarchies, access to land, and local and national political power. Challenging portrayals of West African female farmers as a homogenous group, the book provides an ethnographic account of the contractual relations established between female hosts and migrants, in the exchange of land and labour for agrarian production in a Gambian community.

Keywords: Gambian community; national political power
