Overview

Bill Dunn considers and contests accounts of globalization and post-Fordism that see structural economic change in the late twentieth-century as having fundamentally worsened the conditions and weakened the potential of labour. Including a comparative survey of restructuring in four major industries; automobiles, construction, microelectronics and finance, the book suggests the timing of change and its complex and contradictory nature undermine structural explanations of labor's situation.
