  • Moniz, António


This book organized by Alice Abreu, actual President of ISA-RC30 “Sociology of Work”, is a follow up of an international seminar on the same theme of the title, held in September 1997 also in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). In this book are published papers presented on Latin American case studies, mostly from Brazil and Mexico, but also from Argentina and Chile. All these papers are structured around the three main parts of the book: the first one is on the productive re-structuring and inter-firm relations in automotive production chain, the second one on productive re-structuring and flexibility and the third one on entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial associations.
