About this book

Little discussion about 'globalization' has concerned one of the truly global forces - the management of multi-national and large domestic corporations - and the significance of modern management practices for workers in the developing world. This book examines the nature of work in the modern corporate sector in Turkey with special reference to three industries, white goods, cars and textiles. Based on extensive interviews, it questions some common assumptions in the modern western social science literature, especially in North America and Britain.

Reviews

'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
