Prof. Alice Wiemers Publishes New Book

Alice Wiemers

Congratulations to Prof. Alice Wiemers on the publication of her new book, Village Work: Development and Rural Statecraft in 20th-Century Ghana with Ohio University Press.

“Combining oral histories with decades of archival material, Village Work formulates a sweeping history of twentieth-century statecraft that centers on the daily work of rural people, local officials, and family networks, rather than on the national governments and large-scale plans that often dominate development stories.”
