Ex-Library. Library stamps/marks, corner stained, edgewear. Solid trade paperback. ; Ten essays. "The common theme of this volume is the confrontation between labour and capital in the contemporary Third World. The labour process, particularly in the urban areas is dominated - and has been for a considerable time - by a mode of production which reveals the intrusion of capitalism from incipient to mature forms. ... The papers in this collection are divided between those that concentrate on theoretical issues, yet illustrated their observations with local issues, and those that lean heavily on case studies but place these in a particular paradigmatic context. ... The focus of all the papers is work and workers, the history of labour, the rise and struggles of labour movements, and the emergence of a Third World proletariat." - Introduction. ; International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology, vol XLIX; Ex-Library; 198 pages.
