Prior to the 1974 Revolution there was a major seasonal flow of labour to the coffee forests, the nature and organisation of which are described in detail. Reasons for the decline since the Revolution are given, and it is shown that the seasonal labour migration which was rooted in historic trade links and patterns of conquest is now no more and is unlikely to revive.-D.G.Price
