Retail Worker Politics, Race and Consumption in South Africa: Shelved in the Service Economy by Bridget Kenny
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 289 Pages | ISBN : 3319695509 | 7.17 MB

This book argues that we need to focus attention on the ways that workers themselves have invested subjectively in what it means to be a worker. By doing so, we gain an explanation that moves us beyond the economic decisions made by actors, the institutional constraints faced by trade unions, or the power of the state to interpellate subjects. These more common explanations make workers and their politics visible only as a symptom of external conditions, a response to deregulated markets or a product of state recognition.

In the early '70s, the Southern African nation of Zambia was mired in political instability and dire poverty with little if any outside assistance, so the mere fact that the country had a rock music scene is remarkable, let alone that any recordings have survived of Zambian rock bands of the era.

It was G.W.F. Hegel who once claimed that Africa has no history. The rise of the Ibadan School of history helped to successfully contest this claim. The advanced civilization and history of Egypt also proved impossible for denialists of African history to ignore. Forced by the truth, denialists finally conceded only to turn around and claim that, while “White” Africans were capable, Black Africans were incapable of innovation, leadership, self-rule, and advanced civilization.
