Closing the Iron Cage: The Scientific Management of Work and Leisure

Copertina anteriore
Black Rose Books, 1981 - 205 pagine
Can individuals condemned to alienating "scientifically managed" work environments ever really function as free players in their "free" time? After critically reviewing nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature on the nature of work and leisure, Andrew then addresses himself to two subjects: the growth of scientific management in the industrial work force, and the consequences of that growth for how workers spend their leisure time. This povocative book presents a well worked out economic and organizational framework that could usher in a society based on democratic self-management and the unity of meaningful work and leisure.
