    The breadth of this book is awesome. The concerns and policies of colonial labor administrators, the massive forces unleashed by industrialization (including proletarianization, mass migration, social recomposition on a huge scale), and the African response to this. Would have liked to see more voices of African workers themselves, but I can imagine that such sources are difficult if not impossible to find.

    This is massive. Consider this as 4 volumes in one. It's really worth taking a look, at least at his conclusions. Great empiricism and huuuge questions. This is massive.
