Description

Jamie Swift combines sharp-eyed journalism that brings out the nuances of daily life with a penetrating analysis of jobless recovery. He describes the emerging world of work through the eyes and experiences of people in Kingston and Windsor——two Ontario cities with roots in the pre-industrial past, places poised for the post-industrial information age.
