L atelier et le robot
Le Fordisme et la production de masse à l'âge de l'électronique. La fin du Fordisme, l'affirmation d'un nouveau système technique inaugurent, soutient-on dans le prologue qui ouvre cet ouvrage, une nouvelle conjoncture historique. Sous le nom de technologies de l'information, dont le Robot est pris comme figure emblématique, une révolution silencieuse opère. Par une série de contagions majeures, c'est le système entier de la production de masse qui va s'en trouver bouleversé. Une série renouvelée d'exigences, mais aussi d'opportunités en naîtra. Partir de l'atelier, pour examiner la manière dont le Fordisme affronté à l'âge de l 'électronique se trouve désassemblé, puis recomposé : tel est en bref l'objet de cet ouvrage. De bout en bout et de manière délibérée, la préoccupation est prospective. Pour marquer la diversité des avenirs possibles, en guise d'épilogue, trois scénarios sont proposés qui tracent les contours des différentes configurations "post-fordiennes " qui se nouent sous nos yeux.

The Logic of International Restructuring
There is within the corporate world an evolving international restructuring race,between industrial complexes,that is set to intensify over the coming years.An industrial complex consists of suppliers,distributors,governments,financiers and trade unions.It is the reorganisation of the relationship between the core firm and the above components that is set to change before very long. In this book, Winfied Ruigrok and Rob van Tulder address many current debates on topics such as "Post-Fordism","globalisation" and "lean production".They also identify a number pf rival internationalisation strategies that have been adopted by different companies.Moreover,they present an abundance of new,as well as historical data,on the world's one hundred largest core companies.This data shows that none of the largest core firms is truly "global" or "borderless",and that virtually all of them in their history have benefited decisively from Governmental trade or industrial policies. The authors offer a highly interdisciplinary effort to link three previously isolated debates on industrial restructuring,globalisation and international trade policies.The Logic of International Restructuring is aimed at a wide academic,post-graduate and professional audience working in the areas of business,economics,organisational studies and international relations.

The Class of the New
http: //www.theclassofthenew.net Netizens, elancers, cognitarians, swarm-capitalists, hackers, produsumers, knowledge workers, pro-ams... these are just a few of the monikers that have been applied to the new social class emerging from the networked workplace. In this short book, Richard Barbrook presents a collection of quotations from authors who in different ways attempt to identify an innovative element within society - 'the class of the new'. Announcing a new economic and social paradigm, this class constitutes a 'social prophecy' of the shape of work to come. From Adam Smith's 'Philosophers' of the late 18th century, down to the 'Creative Class' celebrated by sociologist Richard Florida today, the class of the new represents the future of production within and beyond capitalism.

The Political Economy of HIV AIDS in Developing Countries
The issue of universal and free access to treatment is now a fundamental goal of the international community. Based on original data and field studies from Brazil, Thailand, India and Sub-Saharan Africa under the aegis of ANRS (the French nationalagency for research on Aids and viral hepatitis, this timely and significant book both assesses the progress made in achieving this objective and presents a rigorous diagnosis of the obstacles that remain. Placing particular emphasis on the constraints imposed by TRIPS as well as the poor state of most public health systems in Southern countries, the contributing authors provide a comprehensive analysis of the huge barriers that have yet to be overcome in order to attain free access to care and offer innovative suggestions of how they might be confronted. In doing this, the book renews our understanding of the political economy of HIV/AIDS in these vast regions, where the disease continues to spread with devastating social and economic consequences. This volume will be a valuable addition to the current literature on HIV/AIDS in developing countries and will find widespread appeal amongst students and academics studying economics, sociology and public health. It will also be of interest to international organizations and professional associations involved in the fight against pandemics.
