Summary:
"Wo/Men at Work is one part of a major and successful rescue operation. In 1940 under the auspices of the Federal Writers' Project "a left-leaning critic" Harold Rosenberg assembled thirty-four pieces of writing that were first-hand reports about work in the US. The title he gave the collection - Men at Work - is as dated as it is accurate in reflecting the project's - and probably the time's - slant. The collection made it to the copy editing stage. But World War II and cutbacks to FWP intervened, and Men at Work never made it to the printers. For the next seven decades the manuscript remained in storage at the Library of Congress. Because of the committed effort by many, Men at Work will finally be published by the University of Utah Press (forthcoming in 2012). Wo/Men at Work is a corollary to that rescue operation. It expands and brings up to date the discussion that Rosenberg directed seventy years ago"--Introductory essay.
