Summary
Recent years have seen considerable discussion about globalisation. Little of this has concerned one of the truly global forces - the management of multi-national and large domestic corporations - and the significance of modern management practices for workers in the developing world. This book examines the nature of work in the modern corporate sector in one particular developing country, Turkey. Based on extensive fieldwork in the white goods, car and textiles industries, it argues we are not witnessing in these sectors 'the industrial revolution over again' but the industrial revolution plus managers equipped with modern means of organisation and production. It examines the meaning of this for workers and questions some common assumptions about the meaning of factory work in modern western social science literature, especially in North America and Britain. Broadly conceived, the book offers much to those interested in ethnicity, gender and generational differences as well as in work, management, trade unionism, development and modernisation
