Title: Sin Patrón - Stories from Argentina's Worker-Run Factories
Description: Chicago, Haymarket Books. 2007, First Edition. (ISBN: 9781931859431). Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. An unmarked copy which has creasing to front card cover and to the first few pages. 245 pages. Foreword by Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis. Translated by Katherine Kohlstedt in cooperation with Federico Moreno. This is the inside story of Argentina’s remarkable movement to create factories run democratically by workers themselves. In 2001, the economy of Argentina collapsed. Unemployment reached a quarter of the workforce. Out of these terrible conditions was born a new movement of workers who decided to take matters into their own hands. They took over control of their workplaces, restarted production, and democratically decided how they would organize their work. 'Occupy, resist, produce' became the watchwords of this vibrant movement. Sin Patrón tells the story of Argentina’s occupied and recovered workplaces. Or rather, it lets the workers themselves tell their stories. Appearing for the first time in English, this book explores ten case studies of recovered companies, featuring interviews with movement leaders that provide a history from the shopfloor - history that is still being made today. B2C. Very Good/No Jacket.
