Abstract

This description of the introduction of the assembly line by the American management writer Drucker was unusual in helping to demystify science and technology in a context where mainstream writers often showed little interest in their origins, design and development. But if social scientists are now asking questions about the politics and human choices concerning work and technology, it is more likely to be a result of thinking about work as a labour process and the influence in particular of Harry Braverman’s Labor and Monopoly Capital.
