8. 'Rural development' and the rural economy in Niger, 1900-75

Rural development in tropical Africa: 193-221

The paper examines the history of agricultural and rural development policy in Niger from French conquest to the mid 1970s, focusing on the main Hausa-speaking groundnut producing areas. Particular attention is paid to the perceptions held by the colonial and independent administrations of the nature of peasant society, and of the problems of development, which have shaped the choice of rural development strategy.
