Abstract:This book is based on a conference held in 2006 where the results were presented of a research project which examined the characteristics and changes of the moral economy in rural villages in Equatorial Africa. The authors compare the moral economy in Africa, based on subsistence and reciprocity, with that in South East Asian countries. Part I contains introductory discussions by Goran Hydan, Kazuhiko Sugimura, Sam Maghimbi, and Atsushi Kitahara. Part II, Diverging paths to prosperity ad poverty: cross-regional comparisons between Asia and Africa, contains chapters by David Henley and Deborah Fahy Bryceson,Tadasu Tsuruta, Koichi Ikegami, and Yoshihito Shimada. Part III is devoted to the moral economy in rural Thailand. Part IV, Comtemporary forms of African moral economy and their relevance to development, contains chapters on Rutamba villages in southeastern Tanzania (Kumiko Sakamoto), peasant organization in the Lower Senegal River valley (Ryuta Takahashi), small and medium enterprises (SME) in Burkina Faso (Tomomi Tokuori), street trading in Tanzania (Sayaka Ogawa), morality among farmers in highland Ethiopia (Keiichiro Matsumura), cooperative farming labour among the Malo of southwestern Ethiopia (Takeshi Fujimoto), seafood preservation and trade in dried fish in Kilwa Kisiwani, Tanzania (Ryo Nakamura), and labour migration, affection, and the remaking of Lake Malawi fishery (Setsuko Nakayama). The last part deals with theories of moral economy (chapters by Jun Nishikawa, A. Robert Frouville, and Michel Renault). [ASC Leiden abstract]
