The Deindustrialized World Confronting Ruination in Postindustrial Places

The Deindustrialized World :
Confronting Ruination in Postindustrial Places

by Steven High and Lachlan MacKinnon
English | 2017 | ISBN: 0774834935 | 388 Pages | PDF | 34 MB

Since the 1970s, the closure of mines, mills, and factories has marked a rupture in working-class lives. The Deindustrialized World interrogates the process of industrial ruination, from the first impact of layoffs in metropolitan cities, suburban areas, and single-industry towns to the shock waves that rippled outward, affecting entire regions, countries, and beyond. Scholars from five nations share personal stories of ruin and ruination and ask others what it means to be working class in a postindustrial world. Together, they open a window on the lived experiences of people living at ground zero of deindustrialization, revealing its layered impacts and examining how workers, environmentalists, activists, and the state have responded to its challenges.

"This is an important book. It enriches debates about deindustrialization by taking them in a number of new directions and by probing how the term is understood. Taken together, the chapters offer insightful comparative analyses on issues such as race, gender, gentrification, and the stigmatization of the white working class." - Sean O'Connell, professor, School of History and Anthropology, Queen's University
