Synopsis
This is a study of oil workers in Nigeria, showing their daily confrontations with the neo-colonial state and foreign capitalists. It reveals how they devise and execute survival strategies in a state which is almost totally dependent on oil rents, and for oil corporations whose main motive is to the maximization of profits and control of the market. The book challenges assumptions about transnational capital, labour in the neo-colonial state, and the political economy of peripheral social formations. The author presents the position of the workers in their own language of pidgin English, and draws attention to the way non-bourgeois forces get even with the state outside the channels of the trade unions and the legal system.
