  • Art and Work (A Social History of Labour in the Canadian Graphic Arts Industry to the 1940s)

    Sert Kapak
    Examines art and work as social constructs. This title traces the development of commercial illustration and the graphic arts industry in Canada from the late eighteenth century to the 1940s. It describes the development of technology, commercial organization, and professionalization of artists in Canada., A notable addition to the growing body of work that examines art and work as social constructs, "Art and Work" traces the development of commercial illustration and the graphic arts industry in Canada from the late eighteenth century to the 1940s. Beginning with the origins of the graphic arts industry in Britain, Angela Davis describes the development of technology, commercial organization, and professionalization of artists in Canada. She focuses on the artists involved in the creation and reproduction of a "popular" art form. The evolution of commercial illustration and the graphic arts industry, Davis asserts, had a dramatic impact not only on the popular press and advertising but also on illustrators, engravers, photo-engravers, and lithographers, who still considered themselves to be artists but found that they were now working in an industrial atmosphere similar to that of other workers. "Art and Work" reveals that the foundations of Canadian art and popular culture rest not only on the European traditions of "fine" art but also on the commercial art produced in the early graphic arts houses., "Well argued, well researched, and well written, Art and Work adds to the growing corpus of work that looks at art as a social product, an important medium of communication, and an agent of consciousness-forming." Brian Osborne, Department of Geography, Queen's University.

  • Converging Divergences: Worldwide Changes in Employment Systems (Cornell Studies in Industrial and Labor Relations)

    Sert Kapak
    Exploring recent changes in employment practices in seven industrialized countries (Australia, Britain, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden, and the United States) and in two essential industries (automobile and telecommunications), Harry C. Katz and Owen Darbishire find that traditional national systems of employment are being challenged by four cross-national patterns. The patterns, which are becoming ever more prevalent, can be categorized as low-wage, human resource management, Japanese-oriented, and joint team-based strategies. The authors go on to show that these changing employment patterns are closely related to the decline of unions and growing income inequality. Drawing upon plant-level evidence on emerging employment practices, they provide a comprehensive analysis of changes in employment systems and labor-management relations. They conclude that while the variation in employment patterns is increasing within countries, evidence suggests that there is much commonality across countries in the nature of that variation and also similarity in the processes through which variation is appearing. Hence the term "converging divergences."

  • Miners And the State in the Ottoman Empire: The Zonguldak Coalfield, 1822-1920 (International Studies in Social History)

    Miners And the State in the Ottoman Empire: The Zonguldak Coalfield, 1822-1920 (International Studies in Social History)

    Sert Kapak
    The story of the miners of Zonguldak presents a particularly graphic local lens through which to examine questions that have been of major concern to historians—most prominently, the development of the state, the emergence of capitalism, and the role of the working classes in these large processes. This book examines such major issues through the actual experiences of coal miners in the Ottoman Empire. The encounters of mine workers with state mining officials and private mine operators do not follow the expected patterns of labor-state-capital relations as predicted by the major explanatory paradigms of modernization or dependency. Indeed, as the author clearly shows, few of the outcomes are as predicted. The fate of these miners has much to offer both Ottoman and Middle East specialists as well as scholars of the developing world and, more generally, those interested in the connections between economic development and social and political change.

  • Managing to Make a Difference

    Managing to Make a Difference

    Sert Kapak
    This work concerns the personnel and career management of scientists employed in four research settings: universities, government laboratories, research institutes and industrial laboratories. Its purpose is to describe and explain processes and practices, giving equal prominence to men and women in science. It explores the contexts in which the people (the scientific human resource) who are responsible for creating scientific knowledge carry out their work and build their careers. It draws on an empirical study of career management among research scientists in the four types of research setting and additional interest stems from issues concerning employment of "professional" staff at a time when organizations are undergoing enormous change.
