Slaves Into Workers: Emancipation and Labor in Colonial Sudan

Ahmad Alawad Sikainga

Slaves Into Workers: Emancipation and Labor in Colonial Sudan by Ahmad Alawad SikaingaIn the Sudan, native Sudanese slaves served Sudanese masters until the region was conquered by the Turks, who practiced slavery on an institutional scale. When the British took over the Sudan in 1898, they officially emancipated the slaves, yet found it impossible to replace their labor in the country's economy. This pathfinding study explores the process of emancipation and the development of wage labor in the Sudan under British colonial rule. Ahmad Sikainga focuses on the fate of ex-slaves in Khartoum and on the efforts of the colonial government to transform them into wage laborers. He probes...

Prying Open Fortress Europe: The Turn to Sectoral Labor Migration

Alexander Caviedes

Prying Open Fortress Europe: The Turn to Sectoral Labor Migration by Alexander CaviedesGlobalization has increased international migratory pressures, but in advanced industrialized countries entrenched social interests eager to maintain restrictive policies make it difficult for governments to encourage mass migration. This book explains how countries in Western Europe have responded to this challenge by establishing sector-specific labor migration policies that are capable of managing migration toward industries with particular labor shortages while still offering the semblance of managed migration necessary to make such policy politically palatable.

The China Price

Alexandra Harney

The China Price by Alexandra HarneyA landmark eyewitness exposé of how China's factory economy competes for Western business by selling out its workers, its environment, and its future In The China Price, acclaimed Financial Times correspondent Alex Harney uncovers the truth about how China is able to offer such amazingly low prices to the rest of the world. What she has discovered is a brutal, Hobbesian world in which intense pricing pressure from Western companies combines with ubiquitous corruption and a lack of transparency to exact an unseen and unconscionable toll in human misery and environmental damage. In a way, Harney...

A Woman's Wage: Historical Meanings and Social Consequences

Alice Kessler-Harris

A Woman's Wage: Historical Meanings and Social Consequences by Alice Kessler-HarrisIn this updated edition of a pathbreaking classic, Alice Kessler-Harris explores the meanings of women's wages in the United States in the twentieth and twenty first centuries, focusing on three issues that capture the transformation of women's roles: the battle over minimum wage for women, which exposes the relationship between family ideology and workplace demands; the argument concerning equal pay for equal work, which challenges gendered patterns of self-esteem and social organization; and the debate over comparable worth, which seeks to incorporate traditionally female values into new work...

The Influence Machine: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Corporate Capture of American Life by Alyssa KatzAn illuminating history and groundbreaking investigation tracing how a single trade organization turned itself into the most dangerous political weapon in America When Americans hear the words "Chamber of Commerce," many still think of the local business associations that spruce up Main Streets and sponsor Little League teams around the country. But the United States Chamber of Commerce is a different animal altogether. The Chamber was originally founded to give big business a voice during the long—and now almost inconceivable—period in American history that saw the rise of workers' rights,...

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...

Fast Boat to China: Corporate Flight and the Consequences of Free Trade Lessons from Shanghai

Andrew Ross

Fast Boat to China: Corporate Flight and the Consequences of Free Trade Lessons from Shanghai by Andrew RossMost Americans today are aware that jobs are being outsourced to China, India, and other nations at an alarming rate. From factory jobs to white-collar, high-tech positions, the exporting of labor is one of the most controversial issues in America.

Yet few people know much about the other end — about the people who are actually working these jobs and how their own lives have been throw into tumult by these new economic forces. Andrew Ross spent a year in China, interviewing local employees and their managers in Taiwan, Shanghai, and the far western provinces. In this engaging and informative...

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...

From Accidents to Zero: A Practical Guide to Improving Your Workplace Safety Culture

Andrew Sharman

From Accidents to Zero: A Practical Guide to Improving Your Workplace Safety Culture by Andrew Sharman

As leaders increasingly understand the importance of good safety practice to support their business objectives, safety and health practitioners develop better tools and solutions. However, there is still a gulf between these two groups where engagement, communication and shared understanding can be found lacking. From Accidents to Zero opens up the field of safety culture and breaks it down into bite-sized pieces to facilitate new, critical thought and inspire practical action.

Based on the concept of creating safety, as opposed to just preventing accidents, each of the 26 chapters in this user-friendly...

The Case against the Davis-Bacon Act: Fifty-Four Reasons for Repeal

Armand J. Thieblot

The Case against the Davis-Bacon Act: Fifty-Four Reasons for Repeal by Armand J. Thieblot

The Davis-Bacon Act is a United States federal law that established the requirement that prevailing wages must be paid on public works projects. In this book, Armand J. Thieblot argues that the law was passed under false pretenses and based on flawed economic logic. Despite this, the law continues to expand in scope and increase in cost. The act is supported by a substantial bureaucracy within the Department of Labor that has resisted all efforts at substantive modernization or reform. Today, the Davis-Bacon Act is the bedrock upon which stands one of the last bastions of private unionization...
