The Emergence of Modern South Africa views economic conflict, specifically the interaction of the state, big business, and labor, as the central issue in the development of South Africa. Yudelman focuses on the labor-management conflict in the country's gold fields in the early decades of this century, a time and place critical to the development of the state. At that time government walked a tightrope between supporting big business (to ensure economic growth) and appeasing the workers (to remain in power). Yudelman demonstrates how a symbiotic alliance between the mining companies and the state successfully subjugated the workers, and points out that this unique relationship continues to this day, dominating every aspect of life in South Africa. David Yudelman's historical analysis and lengthy epilogue on the 1970s and 1980s shed light on today's economic unrest and those conflicts to come. His book also shows how the South African case provides early and important insights into the development of the state-business symbiosis in industrial societies everywhere.

This paper examines the factor intensity of South Africa''s trade. The conclusion is that South Africa is revealed though its trade pattern to be capital abundant (relative to labor). Surprisingly, this result holds especially for South Africa''s trade with its high income partners, which should presumably have been more capital-rich than South Africa. Moreover, this revealed capital intensity of South African production was not reversed during the 1990s after the dismantling of apartheid. This favoring of capital use, against the background of high and rising under-utilization of the country''s labor resources, raises questions about the functioning of South Africa''s labor market institutions.

The essays in this volume explore the interaction between migrant African labour and the cities in which they worked. These urban structures are viewed as attempts by the state and capital to control not only the worker's time, but space as well -- and by extension -- the worker's life. The compounds that enclosed diamond mine workers, or the pass systems that limit where workers may move are researched. The efforts to resist, or at least gain information by workers are documented, as are the relationships of migrants to their often rural kinsmen. Detailed research on specific topics in 19th and 20th century history deal with a number of African countries while taking a fresh critical look at the goals of those in power, the contradictions
