"Juravich argues that problems in declining American productivity and competitiveness-often and conveniently blamed on workers-can be placed principally in the laps of management."
"[Juravich] provides valuable insights into the operations of a small manufacturing firm, emphasizing the role of worker ‘tradecraft’ practiced on the job.... Of greatest interest to institutions with strong sociology/industrial psychology holdings serving upper-division and graduate students, but also relevant for libraries serving vocational and technical students."
From his well-placed vantage point, Juravich has produced an interesting and valuable ethnography of factory life in the industrial periphery.... I recommend this book to those interested in the sociology of work. It is written clearly and straightforwardly, and it is well suited for undergraduate or graduate courses.
Folksinger Tom Juravich has been a machine mechanic, and is currently Assistant Professor of Labor Studies at Pennsylvania State University.

"Juravich argues that problems in declining American productivity and competitiveness - often and conveniently blamed on workers - must principally be placed in the laps of management. The desire of American management for control and short-term profitability may ultimately have the far-reaching negative consequence of undermining not only corporate profits, but the overall prosperity of American society. Juravich provides valuable insights into the operations of a small manufacturing firm, emphasizing the role of worker 'tradecraft' practiced on the job. ". Seller Inventory # 38267
