Congo-Paris: Transnational Traders on the Margins of the Law (African Issues Published in Association With International African institutE)
Janet Macgaffey, Remy Bazenguissa-Ganga, International African InstituteISBN: 0253214025;
Congo-Paris investigates the transnational trade between Central Africa and Europe by focusing on the lives of individual traders from Kinshasa and Brazzaville who operate across national frontiers and often outside the law. The personal networks of ethnicity, kinship, religion, and friendship constructed by the traders fashion a world of their own, whether in Cairo or Paris. This lively book shows that it is not just the big multinationals who benefit from jets and mobile phones.
