We are grateful to the authors of this book and to photographer Greg Marinovich for the permission to use the book’s cover picture on the cover of this issue of the journal. The picture depicts a gathering of workers during the strike and events at Marikana discussed in this issue. The book itself, published only a few months after the massacre, constructs a narrative of events through interviews with workers who were present at the time as were community members and the authors. It presents a people’s history of events written with a sense of urgency and commitment.

Cutting Lumber
In Rwanda and Uganda, trees growing along the roadsides are selected for cutting into lumber. Lumbermen fell a few trees from which they build a structure on which logs are placed. The trees are then trimmed to create two flat surfaces; lines marked along the surfaces and cleats placed at the ends of the log. One man stands below the structure and another on top, and using a long, two-man crosscut saw, the two lumbermen reduce the log to lumber.

Cover photograph: Diamond miners in Sierra Leone Photographer: Adam Cohn. http://www.adamcohn.com

Artisanal mining
The cover picture is an example of artisanal mining, this time for diamonds in Sierra Leone. Artisanal mining is unregulated and difficult for governments to apply mining, labour and environmental regulations. Workers labour in dangerous conditions, for long hours and small returns. Accident rates are high, and environmental damage often occurs. The portability of diamonds and gems makes them vulnerable to unscrupulous dealers linked to underground trade routes. The connection between the diamond trade and conflict is well known.
