Explains how, despite the structural limitations of the Namibian economy, a colonial legacy of repression and reform, and an authoritarian nationalist movement, trade unions did eventually emerge in Namibia, only to be largely demobilized after independence. It further explores the implications of this demobilization for the consolidation of democracy in Namibia. North America: Ohio U Press

MEDIA REVIEWS
The topic is highly relevant today, for if Namibia had had a strong and independent labour movement since independence, Namibian democracy would not be threatened by ruling party domination - Christopher Saunders in JOURNAL OF AFRICAN HISTORY Without doubt, however, this book contributes enormously to empiricism on the birth of the trade union movement in Namibia and on that basis is of value to academia. - Lawrence Flint in AFRICAN AFFAIRS Dr Bauer argues that a vibrant and autonomous trade union movement is crucial to the consolidation of new democracies, such as Namibia. In Namibia, however, the liberation struggle and the first years of independence have weakened the trade unions. - INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF SOCIAL HISTORY
