Lowenstein, Wendy. Weevils at Work: What’s Happening to Work in Australia; An Oral Record. Melbourne: Catalyst Press, 1997.

‘Work is not just what we do for a living, it is what we do with our lives.’ Wendy Lowenstein has done it again. Interviewing people in . and out of work, she brings alive today’s Australia. Her informants spare neither Labour or Liberal governments, employers or trade union bureaucrats. Warmly recommended.
