Between the Lines
Much has been written about industrialisation and the growth of economies transforming people’s lives, but little is written about how industrialisation can transform ethnicity within countries.
In this episode of the IDS Between the Lines podcast, IDS Research Fellow Max Gallien, interviews Elliot D. Green about his book: Industrialisation and Assimilation: Understanding Ethnic Change in the Modern World.
The podcast explains how and why ethnicity changes across time, showing that, by altering the basis of economic production from land to labour and removing people from the rural life, industrialisation makes societies more ethnically homogenous.
