People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy

People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy by Robert W. McChesney & John NicholsThe consequence of the technological revolution is about to hit hard: employment opportunities will collapse across the board as new technologies replace labor. Moribund capitalism and talk of market solutions won't answer this crisis. In this brave new world, the power of the people to demand a smarter and more humane economic and environmental policy will be diminished as fear trumps reason and surrender replaces hope.

Unless the tremendous benefits of technological progress are employed to serve the whole of humanity, rather than to enrich a handful of monopolists, the social contract will...

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

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

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

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

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

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...

Children and AIDS: Sub-Saharan Africa

Children and AIDS: Sub-Saharan Africa by Dr. Alex OchumboThe disproportional loss of individuals to HIV/AIDS in their most productive years raises concerns over the welfare of surviving members of affected families and communities. One consequence of the rapid increase in adult mortality is the rise in the proportion of children who are orphaned. Sub-Saharan Africa, accounts for about 90 percent of these. Mainly due to the staggering toll of HIV/AIDS, research effort has focused on treatment and prevention. Children have received attention primarily in relation to 'mother to child transmission' and paediatric AIDS. These issues are important and compelling...

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

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

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...

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.

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

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...

Teachers and Politics in Japan

Teachers and Politics in Japan by Donald R. Thurston

The Japan Teachers' Union, which represents 500,000 elementary and lower secondary school teachers, is an important interest group in Japanese politics. It is especially significant as a radical group operating both within and outside the political system and in direct conflict with conservative government policies in education and other areas of domestic and foreign policy.

Donald R. Thurston's descriptive and analytic study of this most controversial labor union reveals a great deal about Japan's educational and political systems, and about the teaching profession in Japan and its relations...

Theory of Union Bargaining Goals

Theory of Union Bargaining Goals by Wallace N. Atherton

Wallace N. Atherton is concerned with a single but very important facet of the behavior of labor unions—the ways in which their bargaining objectives are determined. He begins by reviewing the existing literature and briefly sketches the conceptual structure of the union.

The analysis starts with a theory whose form and substance are close to existing theories, and then is altered by adding unfamiliar elements. An eclectic "economic" model is built with two provisional assumptions: complete internal homogeneity of preferences about bargaining objectives, and perfect knowledge and foresight of...

Although aviation is among the safest modes of transportation in the world today, accidents still happen. In order to further reduce accidents and improve safety, proactive approaches must be adopted by the aviation community. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that all of its member states implement Safety Management System (SMS) programs in their aviation industries. While some countries (the United States, Australia, Canada, members of the European Union and New Zealand, for example) have been engaged in SMS for a few years, it is still non-existent in many...

Diamonds in the Rough explores the lives of African laborers on Angola's diamond mines from the commencement of operations in 1917 to the colony's independence from Portugal in 1975. The mines were owned and operated by the Diamond Company of Angola, or Diamang, which enjoyed exclusive mining and labor concessions granted by the colonial government. Through these monopolies, the company became the most profitable enterprise in Portugal's African empire. After a tumultuous initial period, the company's mines and mining encampments experienced a remarkable degree of stability, in striking contrast...

Market Expansion and Social Dumping in Europe

Market Expansion and Social Dumping in Europe by Magdalena BernaciakThe term 'social dumping' regularly appears in public debates and in policymaking circles. However, due to its ambiguity it is used in a manner that is convenient for individual discourse participants, thus opening the door for misconceptions and ill-grounded accusations. This book systematically examines social dumping in the context of the European integration process. It defines social dumping as the practice, undertaken by self-interested market participants, of undermining or evading existing social regulations with the aim of gaining a competitive advantage. It also shows how the two major...

Contagious Capitalism: Globalization and the Politics of Labor in China

Contagious Capitalism: Globalization and the Politics of Labor in China by Mary Elizabeth Gallagher

One of the core assumptions of recent American foreign policy is that China's post-1978 policy of "reform and openness" will lead to political liberalization. This book challenges that assumption and the general relationship between economic liberalization and democratization. Moreover, it analyzes the effect of foreign direct investment (FDI) liberalization on Chinese labor politics.

Market reforms and increased integration with the global economy have brought about unprecedented economic growth and social change in China during the last quarter of a century. Contagious Capitalism contends that...

Black and Blue: African Americans, the Labor Movement, and the Decline of the Democratic Party: African Americans, the Labor Mov

Black and Blue: African Americans, the Labor Movement, and the Decline of the Democratic Party: African Americans, the Labor Mov by Paul Frymer

In the 1930s, fewer than one in one hundred U.S. labor union members were African American. By 1980, the figure was more than one in five. Black and Blue explores the politics and history that led to this dramatic integration of organized labor. In the process, the book tells a broader story about how the Democratic Party unintentionally sowed the seeds of labor's decline.

The labor and civil rights movements are the cornerstones of the Democratic Party, but for much of the twentieth century these movements worked independently of one another. Paul Frymer argues that as Democrats passed separate...

As his family entered the city in 1986, Duvalier and his dictatorship exited. Haitians, once terrorized under Duvalier's reign, were liberated and emboldened to believe that they could take control of their lives. But how? Joining hundreds of thousands of other peasants trying to adjust to urban life, Joegodson and his family sought work and a means of survival. But all they found was low-waged assembly plant jobs of the sort to which the repressive Duvalier...

Safe Design and Construction of Machinery: Regulation, Practice and Performance

Safe Design and Construction of Machinery: Regulation, Practice and Performance by Elizabeth BluffThere is compelling evidence that a high proportion of machinery-related deaths and injuries are attributable to genuine and serious risks originating within machine design and construction. Through a unique blending of rich empirical data coupled with safety, human factors, socio-legal and learning scholarship, Elizabeth Bluff provides both a nuanced account of firms' performance for machinery safety, and makes conceptual and theoretical contributions to understanding and explaining their performance.

Solidarity Unionism: Rebuilding the Labor Movement from Below

Solidarity Unionism: Rebuilding the Labor Movement from Below by Staughton LyndCritical reading for all who care about the future of labor, Solidarity Unionism draws deeply on Staughton Lynd's experiences as a labor lawyer and activist in Youngstown, Ohio, and on his profound understanding of the history of the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO). The book helps us begin to put not only movement, but also vision, back into the labor movement. There is a blossoming of rank-and-file worker organizations throughout the world that are countering rapacious capitalists and labor leaders who think they know more about work and struggle than their own members. To secure...

Collective Bargaining in the Public Sector: The Experience of Eight States: The Experience of Eight States

Collective Bargaining in the Public Sector: The Experience of Eight States: The Experience of Eight States by Joyce M. Najita & James L. SternUnlike Europe, where most public sector workers have long been included in collective bargaining agreements, the United States excluded public employees from such legislation until the 1960s and 70s. Since then, union membership in the U. S. has grown more rapidly among public workers than among workers in the private sector. This book provides up-to-date information on public sector collective bargaining in the United States today. The editors' seek to understand the real nature of PSB by examining eight states where the action is taking place -- California, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan, New...

No Man's Land: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and the Global History of Deportable Labor: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and

No Man's Land: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and the Global History of Deportable Labor: Jamaican Guestworkers in America and by Cindy Hahamovitch

From South Africa in the nineteenth century to Hong Kong today, nations around the world, including the United States, have turned to guestworker programs to manage migration. These temporary labor recruitment systems represented a state-brokered compromise between employers who wanted foreign workers and those who feared rising numbers of immigrants. Unlike immigrants, guestworkers couldn't settle, bring their families, or become citizens, and they had few rights. Indeed, instead of creating a manageable form of migration, guestworker programs created an especially vulnerable class of labor....

Healthcare Reform, Quality and Safety: Perspectives, Participants, Partnerships and Prospects in 30 Countries by Jeffrey BraithwaiteThe first of its kind, here is a compendium of the current 'state of the art' in global healthcare reform.

It explores how reforms drive quality and safety improvement, and equally how they act to negate such goals. This is a unique opportunity for the cross-fertilization of ideas on an international scale.

Continental Crucible: Big Business, Workers and Unions in the Transformation of North America

Continental Crucible: Big Business, Workers and Unions in the Transformation of North America by Richard Roman & Edur Velasco ArreguiThe crucible of North American neoliberal transformation is heating up, but its outcome is far from clear. Continental Crucible examines the clash between the corporate offensive and the forces of resistance from both a pancontinental and a class struggle perspective. This book also illustrates the ways in which the capitalist classes in Canada, Mexico, and the United States used free-trade agreements to consolidate their agendas and organize themselves continentally. The failure of traditional labor responses to stop the continental offensive being waged by big business has led workers and...

Resilient Health Care, Volume 2: The Resilience of Everyday Clinical Work

Resilient Health Care, Volume 2: The Resilience of Everyday Clinical Work by Robert L. WearsDespite the common focus on deviations and failures in health systems, it is an undeniable fact that clinical work goes right far more often than it goes wrong, and that we only can make it better if we understand how this happens. This second volume of Resilient Health Care continues the line of thinking of the first book. It breaks new ground by analyzing everyday work situations in primary, secondary, and tertiary care to identify and describe the fundamental strategies that clinicians everywhere have developed and use with a fluency that belies the demands to be resolved and the dilemmas...

Hobohemia and the Crucifixion Machine: Rival Images of a New World in 1930s Vancouver

Hobohemia and the Crucifixion Machine: Rival Images of a New World in 1930s Vancouver by Todd McCallum

In May of 1868, Elizabeth Bingham Young and her new husband, Egerton Ryerson Young, began a long journey from Hamilton, Ontario, to the Methodist mission of Rossville. For the next eight years, Elizabeth supported her husband's work at two mission houses, Norway House and then Berens River. Her account of mission life is accompanied by that of her eldest son, "Eddie." Born at Norway House in 1869 and nursed by a Cree woman from infancy, Eddie was immersed in local Cree and Ojibwe life, culture, and language, in many ways exemplifying the process of reverse acculturation often in evidence among...

Generations of Social Movements: The Left and Historical Memory in the USA and France

Generations of Social Movements: The Left and Historical Memory in the USA and France by H?l?ne Le Dantec-LowryFrench political culture has long been seen as a model of leftist militancy, while the left in the United States is often perceived in terms of organizational discontinuity. Yet, the crisis of social democracy today suggests that at a time when the archetypal European welfare state is in danger, critics and citizens interested in understanding or reviving progressive politics are invited to consider the United States, where modes of creative activism recurrently demonstrate potentialities for a renewed leftist culture. Using a transatlantic perspective, this volume identifies activist influence...

The Bracero Program: Interest Groups and Foreign Policy

The Bracero Program: Interest Groups and Foreign Policy by Richard B. CraigLong before "Cesar Chávez" and "Chicano" became commonly known, the word "bracero" had established itself in the language of American politics. The Mexican Farm Labor Program-or bracero program as it came to be known-was from its inception in 1942 a highly controversial issue. At international, national, and subnational levels, it remained the focal point of an intense interest-group struggle. This struggle and its group combatants provide the central concern of this study.

In the early 1940's agribusiness interests had sought to contract Mexican laborers ("braceros") for work on United States...
