Summary
This volume documents the links among trade, colonialism, and forms of representation. Examining trade in commodities as diverse as illicit drugs, liquor, bananas, disease, tourism, adventure fiction, and modern aboriginal art, as well as cultural exchanges in politics, medicine, and literature, the contributors contest the view of trade as an equaliser of cultures, places, and peoples promoted by some modern economists, demonstrating instead the ways in which commerce has created and exacerbated differences of power
