Summary

"This work is particularly interesting for its attention not only to industrial workers and their families, but for the portrayal of the social system in which their lives take on shape and meaning. This is an important book on the many ways in which work matters in a capitalistic society. Professor Nash, as always, makes sense of the diversity before us and finds its significance in global forces of change." -- Carol J. Greenhouse, Cornell University

This is a book about the impact of high tech defense production on individuals, families, and communities. It analyzes the restructuring of an American industry around high tech defense production, and the effect of this restructuring on employment opportunities and on the redistribution of profits. The author is concerned with the construction of corporate hegemony which she defines in Gramscian terms as leadership by large corporations, establishing a pattern for industrial organization. Focusing on regional economic history and corporate policy, Dr. Nash identifies the interconnected issues that bear on the relationship between industrial transformation and social life, on the restructuring of the American economy, and the consequences of militarization and commercialization on the family and community.

"This is a superior and important book, unusually successful in blending theoretical with empirical material. I greatly appreciate the way this skilled anthropologist has combined the viewpoints of modern social history with cultural and political analysis. The book is outstanding and is of vital interest to everyone in this society. I found it difficult to put down." -- William Kornblum, CUNY

June C. Nash is Professor of Anthropology at the City College of New York. She is a co-editor of Women, Men, and the International Division of Labor, also published by SUNY Press.
