Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Britain invented the factory — Manchester was the world's first factory-city. Where are they now, and the world of work that went with them? The answer, mainly, is China. An issue devoted to how and where we made and make things.

Featuring Isabel Hilton in the new factories of China, Joe Sacco on Chechen rebels living in an abandoned dairy factory, Andrew Martin in the chocolate factories of York, Neil Steinberg on the last lamps in Chicago, Des Barry on the factory where his father worked, Liz Jobey on turning a factory into a home and Luc Sante on the boredom of factory work.

Plus new fiction by James Lasdun and Tessa Hadley

With a picture essay on a Rust Belt factory of the American midwest by Alec Soth.

Synopsis:

Britain invented the factory, and some say America perfected it. Where are factories now, and what happened to the world of work that went with them? Features reports and dispatches from the scene of making things all over the world, including new writing by Isabel Hilton, Eric Schlosser, and Robert Sullivan; a report on Bhopal 20 years after the disaster; a return to Akenfield — the town the factory forgot — with Ronald Blythe; and a photo essay by Alec Soth.
