The ten essays in this book explore the intersection of race and class in the study of labour on three continents. Leading scholars examine the way in which working-class identities took shape and changed over time in a variety of settings from the sea ports of southern Africa to the copper mining region of the American Southwest.


PETER ALEXANDER, now Lecturer in Sociology at the Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, was, until recently, a Research Fellow at St. Antony's College, Oxford. His book, Workers, War and the Origins of Apartheid is forthcoming. Currently he is working on a comparative study of Transvaal and Alabama colliers in the early twentieth century. RICK HALPERN is Bissell-Heyd-Associates Chair of American Studies and Professor in the Department of History at the University of Toronto, Canada.
