Mark Rupert traces the relationship between American global power and the rise of mass production. The United States was propelled to the apex of the global division of labor, ensuring victory in World War II and enabling postwar reconstruction under American leadership. Through a study of Ford Motor Company between 1914 and 1952, he examines the political and ideological struggles through which industrial labor was incorporated into the coalition of statesmen and capitalists that constructed the postwar world order.

Industry Reviews

"In the end, the historical chapters of 'Producing Hegemony' make a strong case that workers' political consciousness is malleable. This is an important lesson for our own time." Labor History
