Originally published in 1976, this book is a sociological and historical study of class and race relations in a crucial sector of South Africa – the gold mining industry, during and following the First World War. The author develops a Marxist structuralist explanation of the system of racial discrimination, and then goes in to examine the significant historical events of this formative period, notably those surrounding the strike and uprising of the white workers in 1922. The book explains a system of racial domination essentially in terms of the class positions and problems of the dominating groups, and examines historical developments concerning race in terms of class.

The importance of electronic measuring instruments and transducers is well known in the various engineering fields. The book provides comprehensive coverage of various electronic measuring instruments, transducers, data acquisition system, oscilloscopes and measurement of physical parameters. The book starts with explaining the theory of measurement including characteristics of instruments, classification, statistical analysis and limiting errors. Then the book explains the various analog and digital instruments such as average and true rms responding voltmeters, chopper and sampling voltmeter, types of digital voltmeters, multimeter and ohmmeter. It also includes the discussion of high frequency impedance measurement. The book further explains types of signal generators and various signal analyzers such as wave analyzer, logic analyzer, distortion analyzer and power analyzer. The book teaches various d.c. and a.c. bridges along with necessary derivations and phasor diagrams. The book incorporates the discussion of various types of conventional and special purpose oscilloscopes. The book includes the discussion of time and frequency measurement and types of recorders. The chapter on transducers is dedicated to the detailed discussion of various types of transducers. The book also includes the measurement of various physical parameters such as flow, displacement, velocity, force, pressure and torque. Finally, it incorporates the discussion of data acquisition system. Each chapter gives the conceptual knowledge about the topic dividing it in various sections and subsections. Each chapter provides the detailed explanation of the topic, practical examples and variety of solved problems. The book explains the philosophy of the subject which makes the understanding of the concepts very clear and makes the subject more interesting.
