Abstract:The literature on labour in Africa is characterised by growing depth, complexity and diversity. It is discussed here as part of a history of ideas, with sections on the following themes: historiography of labor - the union, the workplace, and the working class - labor migration revisited - African labor and African history - new frontiers of research - a new literature of engagement - conclusion. The paper was commissioned by the Joint Committee on African Studies of the American Council of Learned Societies and the Social Science Research Council for presentation at the twenty-sixth annual meeting of the African Studies Association, December, 1983, Boston. - Notes, ref.
