Abstract:

"The writings in this volume see labour as a collective actor capable of shaping democratization through the strategic use of power. Labour has the potential, through participation in negotiated compromises, to ensure that the costs of adjustments are not borne by workers alone. To this end, the South African movement has developed innovative strategies and institutions. The book examines labour's capacity to exert such influence in the future. The findings suggest that labour's marginalization could put at risk the consolidation of democracy."--Jacket.
