Rezensionen
'This book offers penetrating insight into both the benefits and problems of paid work in modern manufacturing in the South. More particularly, it provides the first systematic account of workers' lives in the new Turkey, based on rich case studies of how workers get work, feel about work, operate under modern management methods and deal with local conditions, such as repressive trade unionism. This is highly readable, painstakingly researched and strongly recommended book for all those who want to know how working lives in the new manufacturing are being remade on the global assembly line.' - Chris Smith, Professor of Organisation Studies, Royal Holloway, University of London

'Nichols and Sugur have written a well-crafted, empirically grounded, challenging study.' - John Eldridge, University of Glasgow, UK
