    Content: Introduction: the world of White labour -- Making copper, making the copperbelt -- The wild west in Central Africa, 1926-39 -- A good war, 1940-47 -- Fruits of their labour, 1948-55 -- Trouble in paradise, 1956-62 -- Surviving independence, 1963-74.
    Content: "In this book, Duncan Money convincingly argues that the actions, organisations and identities of the White mineworkers who came to Zambia's Copperbelt from the 1920s onwards were shaped by their international connections, experiences and mobility. Drawing on research from archives on four continents, he shows what this meant for the ideas of race and class and for the lives of African workers on the Copperbelt, one of the most important centres of the world copper industry"--

    Series Statement: Routledge studies in the modern history of Africa
    Content: This book showcases new research by emerging and established scholars on white workers and the white poor in Southern Africa. Rethinking White Societies in Southern Africa challenges the geographical and chronological limitations of existing scholarship by presenting case studies from Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe that track the fortunes of nonhegemonic whites during the era of white minority rule. Arguing against prevalent understandings of white society as uniformly wealthy or culturally homogeneous during this period, it demonstrates that social class remained a salient element throughout the twentieth century, how Southern Africa's white societies were often divided and riven with tension and how the resulting social, political and economic complexities animated white minority regimes in the region. Addressing themes such as the class-based disruption of racial norms and practices, state surveillance and interventions-and their failures- towards nonhegemonic whites, and the opportunities and limitations of physical and social mobility, thebook mounts a forceful argument for the regional consideration of white societies in this historical context. Centrally, it extends the path-breaking insights emanating from scholarship on racialized class identities from North America to the African context to argue that race and class cannot be considered independently in Southern Africa. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of southern African studies, African history, and the history of race.

    Content: "Born with a Copper Spoon examines how the metal has been produced, distributed, controlled, and sold around the globe. Over the past two centuries, industrial societies hungry for the highly conductive, corrosion-resistant metal--essential for light, power, and communication--have demanded ever-increasing quantities of copper. From copper cartels and the futures market to the consequences of resource nationalism, Born with a Copper Spoon has a global scope. However, this is not simply a narrative of ever-increasing and deepening global connections, as global history often is. It is also about periods of deglobalization, fragmentation, and attempts to sever connections, as was the case in the mid-twentieth century, when a bitter contest over ownership of mineral resources briefly threatened to cause a major realignment of the world economy. Throughout history, copper production has spawned its own practices, technologies, and a constantly changing political economy. Large-scale production has affected ecologies, states, and companies, while creating and even destroying local communities dependent on volatile commodity markets. The first president of Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda, once remarked that Zambians were "born with a copper spoon in our mouths," but few societies managed to profit from copper's abundance. Contributors to this far-reaching collection cover the finance, technology, labour, business, politics, and environmental impact of what is one of the world's most important metals."--
