Michel Ahohounkpanzon

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper presents the concept of articulation of modes of production in the works of the german africanist Georg Elwert born in 1947 and died in 2005. After the explanation of concepts of mode of production and articulation of modes of production, the paper analyzes how Professor Georg Elwert trained at Heidelberg has used them at Bielefeld and Berlin to analyze the interaction between peasant society, penetration of the central State and Market Economy in Benin (formerly Dahomey) in the late 70s and early 80s. The analysis of African societies and Benin through the paradigm of the articulation modes of production made by Georg Elwert is of interest to those who study these companies and their transformations in a globalization time because his work offer new interpretations and important starting point for research in the complex between farmers, state and market in contemporary Africa . Innovations developed by Elwert relate to aspects such as the economy of solidarity, conflicts, corruption, the “commando State” and markets of violence.
