Children at Work



In 1997, Michael Neary and I published an article in Capital & Class called ‘Working Schoolchildren in Britain Today’. It was concerned with the phenomenon of child labour in Britain and the legal framework underpinning it.

You can now download the article from the Capital & Class web site in PDF format.

Volumizer Resurrection Seven



The Volumizer was Glenn Rikowski’s AOL blog. It was started up on 29th September 2005. On 30th September 2008, AOL announced that all of its Hometown products, including its blogs and newsletters, would be closed down on 31st October 2008. Glenn’s articles, many of which were written for his students at the Volumizer, will be preserved at The Flow of Ideas. Work has begun on this project, and the latest articles to be included are now available, as listed below:
