Taylor's 'time-and-motion studies' in early twentieth-century America, Taylorism has come to define our epoch's organization ofwork and even the time spent in recovering from it. Aimed at supplanting t he worker's skills and authority, 'scientific management' has fragmented the work process, dividing workers from each other and from their creativity.Henry Ford took the assault a step further by turning workers into appenda ges of machines, thus pioneering the Fordist system which was soon embracedby the industrialized world." - from the blurb on the second leaf.
