In this holistic approach to the study of textiles and their makers, Colleen Kriger charts the role cotton has played in commercial, community, and labor settings. She pays close attention the details of how people made, exchanged, and wore cotton cloth from before industrialization in Europe to the twentieth century. Closely tracing this history in Nigeria, Cloth in West African History offers a fresh perspective on the history of the region and on the local, regional, and global processes that shaped it
