Review:

"I like the sustained and well-documented critique of the pro-management perspective of advocates of 'lean production' and Japanese management; the use of solid evidence such as worker surveys and participant observation; the theoretical unity around the ideas of Gramsci on cultural hegemony and the contradictions of mature capitalism; and the comparison with Canadian unions and politics." -- Susan B. Hansen, University of Pittsburgh
