Assembling Export Markets explores the new ‘frontier regions’ of the global fresh produce market that has emerged in Ghana over the past decade.
  • Represents a major and empirically rich contribution to the emerging field of the social studies of economization and marketization
  • Offers one of the first ethnographic accounts on the making of global commodity chains ‘from below’
  • Denaturalizes global markets by unpacking their local engagement, materially entangled construction, need for maintenance, and fragile character
  • Offers a trans-disciplinary engagement with the construction and extension of market relations in two frontier regions of global capitalism
  • Critically examines the opportunities and risks for firms and farms in Ghana entering global fresh produce markets
