9780745335995: Southern Insurgency: The Coming of the Global Working Class

The site of industrial struggle is shifting. The West needs to look further if it wants to understand how workers' self-organisation is developing in countries it too often ignores. Across the Global South, peasant communities are forced off the land to live and work in harsh and impoverished conditions. Inevitably, new methods of combating the spread of industrial capitalism are evolving in ambitious, militant and creative ways. Southern Insurgency will lead the way in examining these organisations in the contemporary era. Immanuel Ness looks at three key countries: China, India and South Africa. In each case he considers the broader historical forces at play - the effects of imperialism, the decline of the trade union movement, the class struggle and the effects of the growing reserve army of labour. For each case study, he narrows his focus to reveal the specifics of each grassroots insurgency: the militancy of the miners in South Africa, the new labour organisations in India and export promotion and the rise of worker insurgency in China. A result of intensive, dedicated firsthand research, at the heart of Southern Insurgency is a study of the nature of the new industrial proletariat in the Global South - a terrifying, precarious existence - but also one of experimentation, solidarity and struggle.

Book Description:

'Seminal and distinctive' (Arup Kumar Sen, Associate Professor, Serampore College, West Bengal, India.)

Southern Insurgency richly reports a qualitatively different practice evolving in India, China, and South Africa. It is horizontal rather than vertical. At this living moment all over our globe, workers are reaching out hands, first to their workmates, then to other workers everywhere. (Staughton Lynd, historian, author, activist)

This book provides the most crucial case studies of alternative worker organising in the major centres of industrial production in China, India, and South Africa - where workers recognise their power and act to end exploitation. (Mary Wong, Globalization Monitor, Hong Kong)

Southern Insurgency tells us how democratic forms of worker organisation can overcome the limitations of conventional labour unions and challenge global capitalist exploitation. (Lee Chun Wing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

Southern Insurgency illuminates the most important questions of our time: can the democratic and transformative currents which inspired the movements of the past re-emerge today? (Frances Fox Piven, City University of New York Graduate Center)

Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the present form of militant unionism in the Global South. (Gregory Wilpert, director Telesur, English)

Immanuel Ness provides dramatic case studies of worker resistance to corporate exploitation and state violence, through the formation of militant organisations in factories and within their communities. (Bill Fletcher, Jr., Author of Solidarity Divided and syndicated columnist)

Southern insurgency is the first book to theorise and examine the present and future shape of global class struggles. Analytically brilliant and empirically sound, it is a must-read for all who wish to grasp and understand the emerging working class in India, China, and South Africa. A superb portrait of the trajectory of the independent workers’ struggle. (Sushovan Dhar, National Trade Union Initiative, and syndicated journalist, India)

Southern Insurgency offers insights on global labour struggles in an era when familiar unions seem exhausted, or at least too weak to make a concerted effort - with concrete examples of workers forming independent unions in the Global South. (Paul Buhle, historian and author)

After reading this work, the question that haunts the liberal mind is 'Why is this unprecedented intolerance of capitalism occurring at a mature stage of its development?' This book is most likely to throw challenges to the conventional economics of collective bargaining. (Debdas Banerjee, Author: Labour, Globalization and the State, Professor, Centre for Development Studies, Central University of Bihar)
