"Black Workers White Supervisors presents an empirically rich, accessible and sufficiently detailed seminal contribution to the growing literature on the economic history of South Africa. This is a uniquely fresh empirical gaze into the history of labour, race and class in South Africa’s mining industry. It is also a very timely contribution, particularly when new radical debates and imaginaries on labour and wealth distribution are being tabled by many scholars in the Global North and South." Dr Sonwabile Mnwana, Deputy Director and Senior Researcher, Society, Work and Development Institute (SWOP), University of the Witwatersrand
