"We have few work organization studies with such thick description over a two-decade period . . . The book is a cautionary tale about the death and hopeful rebirth of manufacturing in the Untied States and provides important social commentary on the American Dream at the beginning of a new millennium." - Anthropology of Work Review
"An approach, tools, and stories that helped us build a strong, productive culture." - Randy Thayer, Lansing Regional Plant Manager, Lansing Delta Township and Lansing Grand River

Callaway Professorial Chair, Robinson College of Business, Georgia State University and Director of the Institute of International Business
