In this important new study, Alf Sadler argues that South African politics reflects the changing ways in which the region has been incorporated into the world economy. in it he traces the effects of a process of industrialization under the dominance of mining on the other sectors of the economy, and on the evolution of the class structure. He shows too how a coercive labour system - which needed a privileged stratum overseers - influenced the definition of political and social rights in racial terms, and profoundly influenced the development of authoritarian controls over blacks in the urban and rural areas from the 1920's onwards.
