Abstract

In this article, Roger Southall responds to a critique made by Ebrahim Harvey on a previous article Southall wrote in the South African Labour Bulletin 25(3), June 2001. Southall argues that Ebrahim Harvey's 'attack' on his analysis of the Tripartite Alliance and Harvey's idea that COSATU should help found a workers party, is an ultra-leftist fantasy.
