Summary
"To what extent were the ideals of white supremacy actually realised during apartheid? This book argues that contradictory dynamics in the urban labour market facilitated and undermined the apartheid aim of white supremacy in the workplace. So, whereas racial inequality was deepened by low wages and rising unemployment among Africans, it was simultaneously undermined by black upward occupational mobility and rising African wages. Apartheid's legacy is therefore not only extreme racial inequality, but also extreme inequality among black South Africans. This book suggests that inequality in South Africa will be driven increasingly by class, rather than racial divisions." "As the only comprehensive empirical analysis of the changing racial and occupational structure of the urban workforce in South Africa under apartheid, this study will make an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the complex inter-relations of past and present racial inequality and economic development in South Africa."--BOOK JACKET
