AUTHOR

Atkins, Keletso E.

SUMMARY

Passionately and often persuasively argued, this book contributes a new, explicitly African-centered perspective to the already exciting historical literature on the creation of a South African working class . . . . - ChoiceThis book is a major contribution to the literature focusing on the formation of the South African working class, emphasizing African cultural practices and African resistance as a shaping force. Gathering information from source materials as varied as the James Stuart oral history collection, documents from government and municipal archives, travelers' diaries, settler memoirs, and colonial newspapers, Atkins manages to tell the account of black workmen from their point of view, and whenever possible, in their own words.Thoroughly original and African centered in its approach, this book makes clear that black workers in this period exhibited a set of patterned responses, and were guided by a body of corporate values and shaped by structural practices that unmistakably constituted an African work ethic.Atkins, Keletso E. is the author of 'Moon Is Dead! Give Us Our Money! The Cultural Origins of an African Work Ethic, Natal, South Africa, 1843-1900', published 1993 under ISBN 9780435080785 and ISBN 0435080784.
