An exercise in critical theory using Flint, Michigan, (made famous by the documentary Roger and Me ) as a dialectical focal point for the effect of deindustrialization in the US, and an indictment against capitalist societies. Dandaneau (sociology, U. of Dayton) interprets Flint's local institutions and their response to the spectre of diminishing auto worker jobs and globalization, arguing that policy solutions were in essence simply part of an ineffectual public relations efforts. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
