Pressestimmen"...Whittaker's work offers an excellent example of careful fieldwork, a high order of empirical and descriptive skill, a provocative model, and a challenging and useful conclusion." Journal of Japanese Studies "...a modest (in length and scope) but careful study of how employment relations in nine British and nine Japanese factories affect the adoption of an innovative process technology--computerized numerical control (CNC) machine tools...should be useful for anyone interested in Japanese and British industrial relations, craft versus more structured approaches to engineering and production management, and the introduction of new process technologies onto the shopfloor." Michael A. Cusumano, ASQ
