Sleepers, wake! : technology and the future of work by Barry Jones( Book )

54 editions published between 1900 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australia - like Europe and the United States - is passing through a post-industrial revolution. Manufacturing continues to decline. Increasingly, we live in an information-based economy. Sleepers, Wake! - an enduring bestseller first published in 1982 and now available in a revised and updated fourth edition - confronts the challenges posed by science and technology and by Australia's changing economic position. Barry Jones, the former Australian Minister for Science and current National President of the Australian Labor Party, draws on the latest data to alert readers to the need to confront key issues associated with the post-industrial and information revolutions. He examines the contraction of the manufacturing industry and the rise of service employment, especially in information services. Sleepers, Wake! assesses these dilemmas and outlines a political programme to ensure that society profits from the technological revolution

"Twelve leading politicians and commentators drawn from across the Party's spectrum examine post-Latham Labor - analysing its problems and proposing a vision for victory in the 2007 federal election. Many believe the Party can be reformed and democratised, and its message made compelling once again. This book is a valuable contribution to reviving Australian political debate and the robustness of our democracy."--Jacket
