Here is the latest regarding the status of the course kit, books, and articles for the Winter 2008 semester:
The course kit for this semester will be available in the bookstore by the middle of next week. It is $16.00. There are a few copies of the Briscoe & Ward's book Helping Ourselves in the bookstore, more will be arriving by the middle of next week I was told by the bookstore yesterday. John C. Craig's book, The Nature of Co-operation, will also be arriving by the middle of next week. The first reading from these two books is from Craig's book on Jan. 17 (Week 16) (see the Winter 2008 lecture and reading schedule for more details).
As far as readings from the Winter 2008 course kit, there are two readings from it that are for next week, the required Linda McDowell reading "Father and Ford Revisited" and the optional but highly recommended David Harvey reading on Fordism and flexible accumulation (these are readings for Week 15, see the Winter 2008 lecture and reading schedule for more details). Here is a PDF version of McDowell's piece you can download for your reading for next week: McDowell, Linda,"Father and Ford Revisited: Gender, Class, and Employment Change in the New Millennium". I will be uploading Harvey's piece so you can download it as well later on today after I scan it.
Also for next week, you'll find the Louis Favreau piece in the Fall 2007 course kit; it's the last article. And, of course, the Cavanagh & Mander and Ellwood chapters are in the books.
Again, stay tuned for the Harvey piece which I will post later on today.
