The Human Contribution: Unsafe Acts, Accidents and Heroic Recoveries

James Reason

The Human Contribution: Unsafe Acts, Accidents and Heroic Recoveries by James ReasonThis book explores the human contribution to the reliability and resilience of complex, well-defended systems. Usually the human is considered a hazard - a system component whose unsafe acts are implicated in the majority of catastrophic breakdowns. However there is another perspective that has been relatively little studied in its own right - the human as hero, whose adaptations and compensations bring troubled systems back from the brink of disaster time and again. What, if anything, did these situations have in common? Can these human abilities be 'bottled' and passed on to others? The Human...

Green Bans, Red Union: The saving of a city

Meredith Burgmann & Verity Burgmann

Green Bans, Red Union: The saving of a city by Meredith Burgmann & Verity BurgmannRevised edition of a landmark book At the height of the building boom in the 1970s, a remarkable campaign stopped billions of dollars worth of indiscriminate development that was turning Australian cities into concrete jungles. Enraging employers and politicians but delighting many in the wider community, the members of the NSW Builders Labourers' Federation risked their jobs to preserve buildings, bush and parkland. The direct impact of this green bans movement can be seen all over Sydney. Green Bans, Red Union documents the development of a union that took a stand. Apart from the green bans...

Resilience Engineering Perspectives, Volume 1: Remaining Sensitive to the Possibility of Failure

Christopher P. Nemeth

Resilience Engineering Perspectives, Volume 1: Remaining Sensitive to the Possibility of Failure by Christopher P. NemethIn the resilience engineering approach to safety, failures and successes are seen as two different outcomes of the same underlying process, namely how people and organizations cope with complex, underspecified and therefore partly unpredictable work environments. Therefore safety can no longer be ensured by constraining performance and eliminating risks. Instead, it is necessary to actively manage how people and organizations adjust what they do to meet the current conditions of the workplace, by trading off efficiency and thoroughness and by making sacrificing decisions.

Business-State Relations in Brazil: Challenges of the Port Reform Lobby

Mahrukh Doctor

Business-State Relations in Brazil: Challenges of the Port Reform Lobby by Mahrukh Doctor

In recent years, the spotlight of international attention on Brazil has often been in the area of logistics infrastructure-for example, on its capacity to deal with the high demand expected during the World Cup and the Olympics. However, neither competitiveness nor infrastructure concerns are new for Brazil. In the 1990s, Brazilian policy-makers adopted a series of liberalizing economic reforms that exposed the poor condition of logistics infrastructure and inadequate investment in Brazilian ports, roads, railways and airports. Over twenty years later, the implications of those reforms still...

From Craftsmen to Capitalists: German Artisans from the Third Reich to the Federal Republic, 1939-1953

Frederick L. McKitrick

From Craftsmen to Capitalists: German Artisans from the Third Reich to the Federal Republic, 1939-1953 by Frederick L. McKitrick

Politically adrift, alienated from Weimar society, and fearful of competition from industrial elites and the working class alike, the independent artisans of interwar Germany were a particularly receptive audience for National Socialist ideology. As Hitler consolidated power, they emerged as an important Nazi constituency, drawn by the party's rejection of both capitalism and Bolshevism. Yet, in the years after 1945, the artisan class became one of the pillars of postwar stability, thoroughly integrated into German society. From Craftsmen to Capitalists gives the first account of this astonishing...

Political Economy of Labor Repression in the United States

Andrew Kolin

Political Economy of Labor Repression in the United States by Andrew KolinThis book explores the political economy of labor repression, expanding the meaning of repression by looking at the relation of politics to economics. It explains how and why this relation leads to the repression of labor and considers how labor repression develops over time from the social relation of capital and labor, and how this is expressed over the course of US history.

Black Americans and Organized Labor: A New History

Paul D. Moreno

Black Americans and Organized Labor: A New History by Paul D. Moreno

In Black Americans and Organized Labor, Paul D. Moreno offers a bold reinterpretation of the role of race and racial discrimination in the American labor movement. Moreno applies insights of the law-and-economics movement to formulate a powerfully compelling labor-race theorem of elegant simplicity: White unionists found that race was a convenient basis on which to do what unions do -- control the labor supply. Not racism pure and simple but "the economics of discrimination" explains historic black absence and under-representation in unions.

Moreno's sweeping reexamination stretches from the...

When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job Quality in the North American Auto Industry

Jeffrey S. Rothstein

When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job Quality in the North American Auto Industry by Jeffrey S. RothsteinIn When Good Jobs Go Bad, Jeffrey Rothstein looks at the impact of globalization on workers in the North American auto industry, revealing that globalization has had a deleterious effect on even the most valued of blue-collar jobs. Rothstein shows how the consolidation of the Mexican and U.S.-Canadian auto industries, the expanding number of foreign automakers in North America, and the spread of lean production have all undermined organized labor and harmed workers.

Veiled Employment: Islamism and the Political Economy of Women's Employment in Iran

Roksana Bahramitash

Veiled Employment: Islamism and the Political Economy of Women's Employment in Iran by Roksana BahramitashThe popularity of neoliberal economic policies is based, in part, on the argument that the liberalization of markets promotes growth and increases employment opportunities for women. Although the latest research bears this out, it also presents a grim portrait of the state of women's employment. Approximately seventy percent of those living on less than a dollar a day are women or girls. In Veiled Employment, the editors seek to examine these stark disparities, focusing on the evolving role of women's employment in Iran. Based on empirical field research in Iran, the contributors' essays document...
