Table of contents

Five separate sections explore workplace democracy from different perspectives. Part 1 identifies the organizational properties common to democratic workplaces. Part 2 examines the psychological impact of working within these organizations. Case studies of the larger, democratically managed organizations and the small, collectively controlled ones are presented in Parts 3 and 4, respectively. Part 5 considers the implementation of economic democracy in the American context and explores the far-reaching implications of workplace democracy for social change.
