Industrialisation and Trade Union Organisation in South Africa 1924-55

£10.99

Product description

This major study of South African trade unionism traces the history of the South African Trades and Labour Council (TLC) from its origins in the 1920s to its demise in the early 1950s. The book focuses on South Africa's secondary industrialisation and subsequent changes in work organisation. By analysing trade union structures and strategies in the context of these changes, Dr Lewis shows how divisions within the labour movement were bound up with the development of production processes and the division of labour, rather than being the inevitable outcome of racial antagonism.

Condition: Paperback with printed covers, fading to spine, small crease inside front cover, otherwise good, pages clean and in good condition, binding strong.
