Publication #2: Between the Plough and the Pick

A new interesting publication about Artisanal and Small scale mining in contemporary times.

Between the Plough and the Pick. Informal, artisanal and small-scale mining in the contemporary world, ed. by Kuntala Lahiri Dutt, Australian National University Press 2018.

This volume deepens our understanding of informal, artisanal and small-scale mining. It shows that the people who are engaged in informal or small-scale mining practices are often the poorest and most exploited labourers—erstwhile peasants caught in the vortex of global change, who perform the most insecure and dangerous tasks.
