Description - Labour and Gold in Fiji by Atu Emberson-Bain
This book is a study of an important aspect of Pacific history and political economy, the mining of gold and the development of an indigenous labor force in Fiji from 1930 to 1970. The book focuses on the town of Vatukoula, which is in the northwest of Fiji's largest island Viti Levu and is the country's only company mining town. Labour and Gold in Fiji examines the mechanics of the labor market but also focuses on the ordinary working lives, experiences and struggles of the mining community. By examining the impact of gold mining in Fiji, 'Atu Emberson-Bain extracts a number of important themes significant to Fijian social and economic history and the Third World in general.
