A history of work in Britain, 1880-1950 by Arthur McIvor( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A History of Work in Britain, 1880-1950 analyses the rich mosaic of experience in the British workplace and discusses the continuities and changes between the mid-Victorian period and 1950. McIvor engages with the main arguments and theories that have dominated this contentious area, critically examining the veracity of Marxist conceptualisations of deskilling, degradation and the subordination of labour. Other themes taken up are the changing shape of the labour force, the role of the unions, interactions between work and health, the changing role of the state in the workplace and gender relations at work."--Jacket

Santé et travail à la mine, XIXe-XXIe siècle by Judith Rainhorn( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'inscription du Bassin minier du Nord-Pas-de-Calais au patrimoine mondial de l'humanité en 2011 a fait de la mine un lieu de mémoire universel et des gueules noires les héros et martyrs d’un monde disparu. Pourtant, l’activité minière, quasiment révolue dans la Vieille Europe et les pays de la première industrialisation, est aujourd’hui en pleine expansion dans la plupart des pays émergents, au point de constituer l’une des activités économiques essentielles de la Chine, du Brésil, de l’Afrique australe et de l’Inde. Érigeant en mythe un monde ouvrier fier de ses valeurs de courage, de solidarité et de puissance virile, Zola a définitivement lié dans notre imaginaire la mine au danger et à la catastrophe. Mais le vieux Maheux de Germinal concède aussi : « Du charbon, j’en ai dans la carcasse de quoi me chauffer jusqu’à la fin de mes jours ». Loin du spectacle de la mort collective, en effet, le travail à la mine est générateur de maladie et d’agonie silencieuse : silicose, ankylostomiase, sidérose et cancers dessinent les contours d’une catastrophe de masse, bien plus meurtrière, vécue à l’échelle individuelle par ceux qui perdent leur vie à la gagner depuis deux siècles. C’est l’histoire, longtemps occultée, que ce livre raconte. Réunissant les contributions de chercheurs internationaux, dont certains pour la première fois en français, il offre une réflexion à la croisée de l’histoire du travail, de la santé, des mobilisations sociales et des politiques publiques. Voyage dans les maux de la mine de charbon, de cuivre ou d’uranium, de la France au Chili, du Japon à l’Afrique du Sud, de l’Allemagne à la Chine, de l’Ecosse à l’Espagne, de la Belgique aux États-Unis, ce livre apporte un regard historique neuf sur une question d’une sinistre actualité dans notre monde globalisé
