Male Dominance and Technological Change

by Cynthia Cockburn

Cynthia's classic study of the remaking of man through the impact of technological change. 

Cynthia Cockburn's classic work began as a study on the human impact of technological change, but ended as an exploratiion in the making and remaking of men, showing how work and technology are used by men in maintaining their control over women. It continues to offer an unparalled insight into men and trade unionism from a feminist point of view.

Cynthia Cockburn is an Honorary Professor at the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender, University of Warwick, and City University London. A researcher and writer in the field of gender, war and peacemaking, she is active in the international women's peace movement. Her most recent books are Antimilitarism (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), From Where We Stand (Zed Books, 2007) and Looking to London (Pluto, 2017).

'Cockburn has managed that most difficult of tasks: to produce a book on an important social issue which is theoretically interesteing, factually informative and well written'
