ABSTRACT
The frictions which frequently appear in human relations within industry do not necessarily arise solely from the work situation. In many cases, such conflicts may reflect the group memberships of the industrial participants and the relative positions of their groups in the total society. In this analysis of industrial relations in an African community, the interpersonal relations of Europeans, Asians, and Africans at work are seen as a counterpart of the relations of these groups in community life as a whole.
