What are the different ways in which racial and class identities intersect? The ten essays in this volume explore this question from a number of different angles and in a variety of geographic settings ranging from the copper belt of the American Southwest to the coal mines of Nigeria. Sharing a common concern with the construction of working-class identities, the authors employ a range of methodologies as they examine the construction of group consciousness. Sensitive to the roles of culture and ideology, they ground their analyses firmly within economic life and the labour process. Rather than seeing identities as imposed upon working people from above, either by capital, culture brokers or political leaders, these essays restore to workers a sense of agency. Empirically rich and theoretically informed, the articles here deepen an understanding of the international dimension of labour history.
