Description

Going postal. We think of the rogue employee who snaps. But Blood, Sweat, and Fear demonstrates that workplace violence never occurs in isolation. Using violence as a lens, Jeremy Milloy provides fresh and original insights into the everyday workings of capitalism, class conflict, race, and gender in the United States and Canada of the late twentieth century, bringing historical perspective to contemporary debates about North American violence. This explosive book traces the shift from the collective violence of strikes and riots to the individualized violence of assaults and shootings, revealing the historical context of the workplace as battleground.
