About this product
- DescriptionCynthia 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 techlogy and backed by Tatcher's anti-union laws. Brothers began as a study on the human impact of techlogical change. It ended as an exploration in the making and remaking of men, showing how work and techlogy 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.
