Gold and Workers. A People’s History of South Africa. 1886–1924.Vol.1


The rise of the mining industry changed the course of South African history.Other books have seen this as the story of ‘Boer and Briton’ with powerful magnates like Cecil John Rhodes.on one side and tough Boer leaders like Paul Kruger on the other.This book looks at the same period of history from another viewpoint–that of the working men and women whose labour made South Africa’s industrial revolution possible.
