The Rise of Predatory Locales in the Postwar World
On inventive and imaginative research Pandemonium -"the rise of predatory locales in the postwar world" should be mentionned. About techniques of control in a capitalist society, quite a dark book but actually achieves a somewhat productive critizism. Though from personal experience and from a talk yesterday on working in callcenters it might be that on that topic you could write an even grimmer book -my roommate worked for a year at a call center in Scotland and all their performances was messured and put to statistics above 30 min of going to the restroom a week would get you sacked and everybody knew that they were being monitored on their every moove. Access to these workplaces are quite restricted and doing reasarch on it would take a Gunter wallraff approach - which would offcourse be an interesting project in it self. read a review
