Cotton Cultivation and Child Labor in Post-Soviet Uzbekistan

Bilal Bhat

Cotton Cultivation and Child Labor in Post-Soviet Uzbekistan by Bilal BhatUzbekistan is the world's fifth-largest producer and second-largest exporter of cotton in the world, and unlike other countries where child labor is common, it is Uzbekistan's official policy to employ children.

Value: The Representation of Labour in Capitalism

Diane Elson

Value: The Representation of Labour in Capitalism by Diane ElsonThis republication of a long out-of-print collection of essays, first published in 1979, focuses on the elusive concept of “value.” The field of study surrounding the theory of value remains comparatively sparse in Anglophone circles, and the essays here aim to answer the question, “Why is Marx??s theory of value important?”

From South Texas to the Nation: The Exploitation of Mexican Labor in the Twentieth Century

John Weber

From South Texas to the Nation: The Exploitation of Mexican Labor in the Twentieth Century by John WeberIn the early years of the twentieth century, newcomer farmers and migrant Mexicans forged a new world in South Texas. In just a decade, this vast region, previously considered too isolated and desolate for large-scale agriculture, became one of the United States' most lucrative farming regions and one of its worst places to work. By encouraging mass migration from Mexico, paying low wages, selectively enforcing immigration restrictions, toppling older political arrangements, and periodically immobilizing the workforce, growers created a system of labor controls unique in its levels of exploitation....

Strikebreaking and Intimidation: Mercenaries and Masculinity in Twentieth-Century America

Stephen H. Norwood

Strikebreaking and Intimidation: Mercenaries and Masculinity in Twentieth-Century America by Stephen H. NorwoodThis is the first systematic study of strikebreaking, intimidation, and anti-unionism in the United States, subjects essential to a full understanding of labor's fortunes in the twentieth century. Paradoxically, the country that pioneered the expansion of civil liberties allowed corporations to assemble private armies to disrupt union organizing, spy on workers, and break strikes. Using a social-historical approach, Stephen Norwood focuses on the mercenaries the corporations enlisted in their anti-union efforts--particularly college students, African American men, the unemployed, and men associated...

Grounds for Dreaming: Mexican Americans, Mexican Immigrants, and the California Farmworker Movement

Lori A. Flores

Grounds for Dreaming: Mexican Americans, Mexican Immigrants, and the California Farmworker Movement by Lori A. FloresKnown as "The Salad Bowl of the World," California's Salinas Valley became an agricultural empire due to the toil of diverse farmworkers, including Latinos. A sweeping critical history of how Mexican Americans and Mexican immigrants organized for their rights in the decades leading up to the seminal strikes led by Cesar Chavez, this important work also looks closely at how different groups of Mexicans-U.S. born, bracero, and undocumented-confronted and interacted with one another during this period.
 
An incisive study of labor, migration, race, gender, citizenship, and class, Lori Flores's...

Team and Collective Training Needs Analysis: Defining Requirements and Specifying Training Systems

Team and Collective Training Needs Analysis: Defining Requirements and Specifying Training Systems by Dr. John Huddlestone & Dr. Jonathan Pike

Military capability is delivered operationally at a team and collective level, be it a unit as small as a squad or section, or as large as a maritime task group. Modern military forces are required to deal with a potentially wide range of missions frequently involving multiple alliance partners, within a geopolitical environment which can seem to change rapidly. Individual performance, while being important, is not the primary determinant of mission success - force integration, interoperability, adaptability and teamwork are key factors. Team and collective training which fully addresses these...

Organizational Accidents Revisited

James Professor Reason

Organizational Accidents Revisited by James Professor Reason

Managing the Risks of Organizational Accidents introduced the notion of an ‘organizational accident??. These are rare but often calamitous events that occur in complex technological systems operating in hazardous circumstances. They stand in sharp contrast to ‘individual accidents?? whose damaging consequences are limited to relatively few people or assets. Although they share some common causal factors, they mostly have quite different causal pathways. The frequency of individual accidents - usually lost-time injuries - does not predict the likelihood of an organizational accident. The...

Security Culture: A How-to Guide for Improving Security Culture and Dealing with People Risk in Your Organisation

Hilary Mrs Walton

Security Culture: A How-to Guide for Improving Security Culture and Dealing with People Risk in Your Organisation by Hilary Mrs Walton

Security Culture starts from the premise that, even with good technical tools and security processes, an organisation is still vulnerable without a strong culture and a resilient set of behaviours in relation to people risk.

Hilary Walton combines her research and her unique work portfolio to provide proven security culture strategies with practical advice on their implementation. And she does so across the board: from management buy-in, employee development and motivation, right through to effective metrics for security culture activities.

There is still relatively little integrated and structured...

Strike Action and Nation Building: Labor Unrest in Palestine/Israel, 1899-1951

David De Vries

Strike Action and Nation Building: Labor Unrest in Palestine/Israel, 1899-1951 by David De VriesStrike-action has long been a notable phenomenon in Israeli society, despite forces that have weakened its recurrence, such as the Arab-Jewish conflict, the decline of organized labor, and the increasing precariousness of employment. While the impact of strikes was not always immense, they are deeply rooted in Israel's past during the Ottoman Empire and Mandate Palestine. Workers persist in using them for material improvement and to gain power in both the private and public sectors, reproducing a vibrant social practice whose codes have withstood the test of time. This book unravels the trajectory...

Diamonds and War: State, Capital, and Labor in British-Ruled Palestine

David De Vries

Diamonds and War: State, Capital, and Labor in British-Ruled Palestine by David De VriesThe mining of diamonds, their trading mechanisms, their financial institutions, and, not least, their cultural expressions as luxury items have engaged the work of historians, economists, social scientists, and international relations experts. Based on previously unexamined historical documents found in archives in Belgium, England, Israel, the Netherlands, and the United States, this book is the first in English to tell the story of the formation of one of the world's main strongholds of diamond production and trade in Palestine during the 1930s and 1940s. The history of the diamond-cutting...

Supervision and Authority in Industry: Western European Experiences, 1830-1939

Patricia Van den Eeckhout

Supervision and Authority in Industry: Western European Experiences, 1830-1939 by Patricia Van den EeckhoutThe number of studies discussing the labour relationship under industrial capitalism is overwhelming, but the literature on labour and its concrete, day-today shop-floor practices is much less abundant. How and by whom workers were supervised is one of the neglected aspects in the history of labour relations. After an insightful introductory chapter discussing the different forms of supervision in the United States, Britain, France and Germany before the First World War, the case studies in this volume focus on foremen: vital, but largely unstudied figures in the history of factory life, labour...
