News Corporation, Technology and the Workplace: Global Strategies, Local Change
(Hardback - Feb 2000)
Not currently available online.
This book examines technological innovation and workplace restructuring carried out by News Corporation in its newspaper holdings in Britain, the United States and Australia. Timothy Marjoribanks finds that while some outcomes at various local sites were similar, many were dramatically different. His study reveals that existing social relations in a particular location have a major impact on workplace reforms. Significantly, it emphasizes the importance of analyzing the connections between events occurring locally, nationally and globally if we are to understand the growing influence of corporate actors such as News Corporation.
