At a time of soaring corporate profits and plenty of HR lip service about "wellness," millions of workers – in virtually every industry – are deeply unhappy. Why did work become so miserable? Who is responsible? Dan Lyons’s Lab Rats: How Silicon Valley Made Work Miserable for the Rest of Us (Hachette) is a groundbreaking examination of how the half-baked ideas of Silicon Valley and its "new oligarchs" have changed the way we work, damaged our brains, and left us poorer and insecure.

Oregon Redistricting Reform Forum
Historian Heather Mayer’s Beyond the Rebel Girl (Oregon State) is a study of the women associated with the Industrial Workers of the World in Oregon and Washington, from the time of the union's founding in 1905 until 1924. Mayer’s new book deepens our understanding of how the IWW functioned and how the union supported women in their fight for birth control, sexual emancipation, and better labor conditions, all while facing persecution at the local, state, and federal levels.

What will the marijuana industry look like as legalization spreads? Will corporations sweep in and create Big Marijuana? Or will marijuana agriculture stay true to its roots in family farming, reflecting a sustainable, local, artisanal ethic? In Craft Weed (MIT), Ryan Stoa argues that the industry’s future should be powered by small farms – that its model should be more craft beer than Anheuser-Busch.
The opioid epidemic has been described as "one of the greatest mistakes of modern medicine." But calling it a mistake is a generous rewriting of the greed, corruption, and indifference that pushed the US into consuming over 80 percent of the world's opioid painkillers. Chris McGreal’s American Overdose (PublicAffairs) reveals not only how Big Pharma hooked Americans on powerfully addictive drugs, but the corrupting of medicine and public institutions that let the opioid makers get away with it.
