That workers cannot run production is a myth that experiences of the labor movement worldwide have contributed to demystify. Workers can take control of their factories, reverting assumptions about property, management, work organization and wages. This book analyzes the challenges and questions alternative forms of work presents to workers.
MAURIZIO ATZENI is a lecturer in Labour and Industrial Relations in the School of Business and Economics at Loughborough University, UK.
