Description

First published in 1997, this volume departs from conventional analyses of Botswana’s political economy and focuses on the second phase of Botswana’s capitalist development from 1966-1990, arguing that even in a formally liberal democratic country, the imperatives of economic growth and development in a capitalist context give rise to the state’s close supervision and control of organised labour. Taking inspiration from Marx’s theories of history, Monageng Mogalakwe examines the capitalist form of the Botswana state and its relationships with the trade unions, labour law, industrial relations, class struggle and organised labour in a period characterised by direct state intervention in the economy and in industrial relations.
