Dix, the leading authority on work relations in the Appalachian cola region, has written an important book about mechanization in the mining industry. 2. What was the effect of this technology on the social relations of production and the quality of working life?

Writing in 1924 before mine mechanization had advanced, but when its potential for altering work relations was fully understood, Carter Goodrich believed that mechanical loading provided the miners’ union with an opportunity to protect and even extend workers’ control over their jobs. The union, he proposed, could focus its efforts on improving the quality of working life by strengthening the control exercised.

Dix reconstructs the social, political, technical and economic environment of the hand-loading era and then views the evolution of mechanical coal technology, including the inventions of Joseph Joy. He also examines the rise of the United Mine Workers under John L. Lewis, and the expanded role of the state under New Deal legislation and regulations.
