Offers original research "on the way new technology has changed the working conditions of engineers at a General Electric aircraft engine design facility and at the New York City Department of Environmental Protection"; upshot: the "proletarianization" of such "technical intellecturals" in terms of their work and conditions of employment" (Materra 463). Rev. Philip Mattera, The Nation 2 April 1995: 463-65 whom we quote. See in this Category, J. Rifkin's The End of Work; see under Fiction F. Pohl's "The Midas Plague" and K. Vonnegut's Player Piano.
