BooknewsA fascinating anthropological study of work and work attitudes at two manufacturing facilities. The author explores how people view their workplaces, and the work that they do in them, teasing to articulation deeply embedded ideas about a familiar topic--how the majority of us spend our waking hours. He talks with managers, supervisors, and shop floor operators, applying theory to topics such as skill requirements, actual work practices, the "nuts and bolts" of production, competition, paperwork, and change.
