Editorial Reviews


The topic is highly relevant today, for if Namibia had had a strong and independent labour movement since independence, Namibian democracy would not be threatened by ruling party domination - Christopher Saunders in JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY Without doubt, however, this book contributes enormously to empiricism on the birth of the trade union movement in Namibia and on that basis is of value to academia. - Lawrence Flint in AFRICAN AFFAIRS Dr Bauer argues that a vibrant and autonomous trade union movement is crucial to the consolidation of new democracies, such as Namibia. In Namibia, however, the liberation struggle and the first years of independence have weakened the trade unions. - INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF SOCIAL HISTORY --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
