Review:

'Cockburn has managed that most difficult of tasks: to produce a book on an important social issue which is theoretically interesteing, factually informative and well written' New Society'A fine case study of recent technological change' Technology and Culture' A disturbing and thought-provoking book, particularly for men' Print' She dissects the culture of the industry in a gripping and disturbing way... My own experience as a time-served compositor in the boom years of the post-war printing industry is joyfully, and painfully, revived in Brothers' Printing World
