The Fordism of Ford and Modern Management: Fordism and Post-Fordism (Vol 2)
In an attempt to make sense of changes that have taken place in the workplace world-wide, especially since the last quarter of the twentieth century, the two concepts of Fordism and Post-Fordism are often invoked. These volumes perform a valuable service to social scientists in bringing together important previously published contributions which explore this field.
In their selection of articles, the editors range from the Fordism of Henry ford, to its oft-touted modern management successors - Japanisation and Toyotaism, flexible specialisation, lean production and McDonaldisation. They also provide useful criticisms of each of these developments.
The editors have written an authoritative introduction which offers an informative discussion of these issues.
