Mine Workers and Monopoly Capitalism in Kimberley, 1867 – 1895

From the fly-leaf: “The author examines the history of Kimberley and the mining industry from the discovery of diamonds and the rush by thousands of prospectors in the late 1860s to the construction of a monopoly enterprise by Rhodes and De Beers in the 1880s and 1890s. Tracing the transition from individual diggings, the subjugation of rural black societies, the use of law to build for blacks an urban community and the crushing and co-optation of white labour.” 1st Edition.
