An Outline of the Sociological Background to African Labour
(Salisbury: Ensign Publishers, 1961). . 203 x 134 mm; saddle-stitched card wrappers; pp. 95; graphs; detailed map showing tribal distribution in the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. Trace of soiling to cover; a little foxing. Good to very good condition. 'Gone are the days of assuming that what African labour requires is what is "good" for it. Communication is not a vehicle for instruction, but for consultation. To achieve this, a knowledge of sociological background and the problems which arise from environmental change is essential. To the economic planner too, this knowledge is necessary. In these times of stress and transition, when so much of the root causes of racial antagonism and prejudice stems from ignorance and misunderstanding, Professor Clyde Mitchell has, in this easily digestible "outline", provided the reader with an invaluable and authoritative study of the life and customs of the African peoples of Central Africa, and I commend this booklet as essential reading to all who strive for better understanding.' - From the Foreword by A. E. Abrahamson, Minister of Labour, Social Welfare and Housing, Southern Rhodesia..
