From the Back Cover:

The book documents, through photographs and words, the changing world of manual labor in late twentieth-century New England. In addition to depicting the physical environment in which industrial production occurs, the volume gives visibility and voice to the workers themselves - the women and men whose lives have been affected most directly by recent social and economic transformations. Although the focus is on New England, the issues addressed are relevant to the United States as a whole. The Changing Landscape of Labor features more than fifty black-and-white photographs contrasting the work environments of such traditional industries as paper and textile mills, foundries, and shipyards with such newer, high-technology industries as computer manufacturing and aircraft production. Accompanying these images are excerpts from interviews with workers. Essays on the process of deindustrialization and the tradition of documentary photography place the photographs and personal testimony in a broader historical and cultural context.

About the Author:

Michael Jacobson-Hardy's photographs have been exhibited widely and are included in many public and private collections, including the Smithsonian Institution, the Henry Ford Museum, the Yale University Art Gallery, and the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University. An exhibition of his labor photographs from The Changing Landscape of Labor will open at the new Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams. John T. Cumbler is associate professor of history at the University of Louisville. Robert E. Weir teaches history at Bay Path College. Bruce Laurie is professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
