Abstract:The key to understanding the development of tobacco production in Northern Rhodesia between 1912 and 1938 lies in examining two broad aspects which shaped the overall size and productive capacity of the sector: 1) production was built upon and sustained a distorted form of primitive accumulation because the transfer of surplus value and other resources from non-capitalist African forms of production to emergent settler capitalism took place in a process which preserved non-capitalist forms of production; 2) the close relationship between the settler, the state, and international tobacco monopolies in the marketing of the crop. In many respects, this article attempts an examination of aspects of underdevelopment in general, and in the specific context of Northern Rhodesia: Introduction and development of Virginia tobacco production - Attempts to resolve marketing problems.
