A dissertation submitted to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, in fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy Johannesburg, 2005 To my father, Ugo, my mother, Cesira, and my sister, Beatrice. And to Miranda: here it is, at last. The work for this dissertation has developed over almost six years, a taxing period when the necessary commitment has not always accompanied my efforts. Therefore, support,<span class="external-identifiers"> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener noreferrer" href="https://doi.org/10.1177/0021909606072625">doi:10.1177/0021909606072625</a> <a target="_blank" rel="external noopener" href="https://fatcat.wiki/release/sveo6gth4bgxhnornyi5iyeu2q">fatcat:sveo6gth4bgxhnornyi5iyeu2q</a> </span>

Living in Johannesburg from 1994 to 2002 I have had the fortune and the privilege to directly experience the South African transition while working in the country's most exciting intellectual location, the University of the Witwatersrand. My years of teaching and research at Wits have taken place in a scholarly engaging environment to which greatly contributed the often exceptional qualities of the people I have worked with. My first acknowledgement goes therefore to all my colleagues in the Department of Sociology and the Sociology of Work Unit (SWOP), which have invaluably contributed to making South Africa my home and to developing my interest in South African labour and the social dimensions of the transition. My dissertation supervisor, Eddie Webster, has constructively, patiently and comradely seen this work through. I am grateful for his advice and inspiration, and for a mutual respect that even in moments of frank debates and constructive disagreement has never been lacking. Many colleagues have shaped over the years my intellectual perspectives and interests, and I wish here to thank
