DEATH ON THE JOB — Occupational Health and Safety Struggles in the United States by Daniel M. Berman. Monthly Review Press. The relationship between health and work has only recently become a focus of concern and organisation for some sections of the labor movement. Over the past 10 years there have been numerous books written for public consideration on this relationship. However, the vast m ajority have been written by investigative journalists who have focussed on one industrial hazard, and shown the industry cover ups and the state complacency. Death on the Job is different. It is an historical analysis of workplace health and safety. It analyses past experiences in the labor movement and discusses possible strategies for the future.
