Abstract


Since the publication of Harry Braverman's Labor and Monopoly Capital (Monthly Review Press, 1974), we have received a number of letters and comments from workers about what the book meant to them.

It was indeed a powerful experience, and I was left feeling alternately exhilarated and depressed; as a 'semi-skilled' VDJ-typesetter and paste-up 'artist' I'm glad that the story is out, and that Harry Braverman could detail what I'd had a gut feeling about for a long time." Similarly, the following account was inspired by the insights gained by the author into his own work experience from Labor and Monopoly Capital. - THE EDITORS
