A new introduction and substantial closing chapter bring this book up to date with the technological changes which have affected the printing industry since this book was first published in the early 1980s. Cynthia Cockburn traces the events in the industry in the ten years to 1991, looks at their effect on the industrial muscle of skilled print workers and the position of women in the industry, and sets these findings in the context of broader trends in gender relations. The original material, based on interviews with fifty skilled print craftsmen, remains as instructive today about male attitudes to work, women and class relationships as it was then.
