"Webster and his colleagues have done it again! Their careful ethnographic studies offer a much-needed perspective from Africa on the central challenges facing labour worldwide: the disruptive impact of digital technologies and how workers can mobilise in response." Ruth Milkman, City University of New York

"Workers as helpless victims of new technology? Not so, argues Eddie Webster in this powerful book on labour’s innovative forms of organisation and new power resources in the Global South. A must read!" Andreas Bieler, University of Nottingham
