This text is an account of life in the new lean production workplace - the car industry, where it all began. It brings together the two emblematic features of the 20th century: a working class meant to topple the social order, and a product that largely provided the developmental model of that same order. This book is neither a retrospective assessment nor a prediction for the future: it reveals what has changed and what has remained the same, in a workplace that remains a major part of the makeup of our society.
