Criminal Capital: Violence, Corruption and Class in Industrial India

Andrew Sanchez

Criminal Capital: Violence, Corruption and Class in Industrial India by Andrew Sanchez

Criminal Capital explores the relationship between neoliberalism, criminality and the reshaping of class in modern India. It discusses how the political vocabularies of urban industrial workers reflect the processes by which power is distributed across the region. Based upon field research among a 'casualised' workforce in the industrial city of Jamshedpur, the book examines the links between the decline of employment security, and criminality in trade unions, corporations and the state.

The volume compares popular discourses of corruption against the ethnography of local labour politics, business...

The Politics of West German Trade Unions: Strategies of Class and Interest Representation in Growth and Crisis

Andrei Markovits

The Politics of West German Trade Unions: Strategies of Class and Interest Representation in Growth and Crisis by Andrei Markovits

First published in 1986, this book assesses the politics of the West German trade unions in the context of their larger role as major actors in the polity. By focusing on the historical realities of the labour movement both before and after 1945, the study explains the extent to which organized labour solidified and challenged the dominant structures of politics and authority. It examines the metalworkers' union, the construction workers' union, the printers' union and the chemical workers' union and shows how the industrial reality of each organisation helped shape its political outlook and...

The Margins of Citizenship

Philip Cook

The Margins of Citizenship by Philip Cook

Citizenship is a central concept in political philosophy, bridging theory and practice and marking out those who belong and who share a common civic status. The injustices suffered by immigrants, disabled people, the economically inactive and others have been extensively catalogued, but their disadvantages have generally been conceptualised in social and/or economic terms, less commonly in terms of their status as members of the polity and hardly ever together, as a group.

This volume seeks to investigate the partial citizenship which these groups share and in doing so to reflect upon civic marginalisation...

Reskilling America: Learning to Labor in the Twenty-First Century

Katherine S. Newman & Hella Winston

Reskilling America: Learning to Labor in the Twenty-First Century by Katherine S. Newman & Hella Winston

From Katherine Newman, award-winning author of No Shame in My Game, and sociologist Hella Winston, a sharp and irrefutable call to reenergize this nation's long-neglected system of vocational training

After decades of off-shoring and downsizing that have left blue collar workers obsolete and stranded, the United States is now on the verge of an industrial renaissance. Companies like Apple, BMW, Bosch, and Volkswagen are all opening plants and committing millions of dollars to build products right here on American soil.

The only problem: we don't have a skilled enough labor pool to fill these positions,...

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...

Hazards of the Job: From Industrial Disease to Environmental Health Science

Christopher C. Sellers

Hazards of the Job: From Industrial Disease to Environmental Health Science by Christopher C. SellersHazards of the Job explores the roots of modern environmentalism in the early-twentieth-century United States. It was in the workplace of this era, argues Christopher Sellers, that our contemporary understanding of environmental health dangers first took shape. At the crossroads where medicine and science met business, labor, and the state, industrial hygiene became a crucible for molding midcentury notions of corporate interest and professional disinterest as well as environmental concepts of the 'normal' and the 'natural.' The evolution of industrial hygiene illuminates how powerfully battles...

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.

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...
