Ebook description:

Available once more in a single quantity, New Babylon, New Nineveh explores the previous struggles of on a regular basis individuals on the Witwatersrand, South Africa, 1886-1914. This was a interval of extraordinary social, political and financial change. Charles van Onselen examines a bunch of practices, processes and issues which, in some ways, make for startling comparisons with modern-day South Africa. Van Onselen investigates the pervasive, however extremely problematic use of alcohol and prostitution, which had been used to manage each black and white mine employees, by the state and the mine house owners. This exploitation of the life-style of the only miners later gave strategy to the official encouragement of working-class household life. This gave rise to the appearance of home servants and the introduction of a scientific programme of suburbanisation and low-cost public transportation. We see how not even these developments had been in a position to defend the poorest and weakest South Africans of the time. Van Onselen explains how Afrikaner unemployment and an affinity for commerce unionism had been paralleled by additional marginalisation, black unemployment and the resultant formation of jail gangs, which flourish even to the current day
