Book News Annotation:

In this history of the early history of the African National Congress, Limb (history, Michigan State U.) focuses squarely on the relationship of the ANC to the South African working class and its labor organizations. He describes the growth of the working class and its organizations, considers the objective conditions favoring alliances between workers and the ANC, and presents case studies of ANC attitudes towards workers at different levels in the organization. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

At a time when African National Congress-alliance politics are again prominent in South Africa, this nuanced study of the intersection of class and African national forces, in the history of Africa's oldest national liberation movement, helps explain the deeper origins of this alliance. The book squarely places African agency at the center of South African history and re-casts the story of the ANC in the words and actions of its own members and supporters at local and regional, as well as national, levels. In doing so, it shines a long overdue light on ordinary black activists, including politicized workers and women, and integrates these stories with those of more well-known leaders.
