Brothers: Male Dominance and Technological Change (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


Cynthia Cockburn's classic study of masculinity and skill in printing showed newspaper compositors locked in battle with their employers. This new edition adds an Afterword on the final defeat of the men by press owners armed with computer technology and backed by Tatcher's anti-union laws. Brothers began as a study on the human impact of technological change. It ended as an exploration in the making and remaking of men, showing how work and technology are used by men in maintaining their control over women. It continues to offer an unparalleled insight into men and trade unionism from a feminist point of view.

Cynthia Cockburn is a researcher and writer in the sociology of work and gender at The City University, London. She studied at the London College of printing and is a member of the National Union of Journalists. She is author of The Local State and Machinery of Dominance (Pluto 1977 and 1985) and Two-Track Training and In the Way of Women: Men's Resistance to Sex Equality in Organizations (1987 and 1991).
