The key contribution of this critical book is to counter the idea that industrial restructuring is a relatively problem-free stage in the evolution to a post-industrial society. The editor argues that the extensive loss of manufacturing jobs in the advance industrial countries over recent years has had extremely serious effects on people, economies and societies and that it is a major cause of economic recession. The jobs gained in the newly industrializing countries pay low wages, expose workers to hazards, destroy local cultures and fail in generating integrated development for the Third World.
