Vetenskap och politik: Bo Gustafsson 1931-2000, en minnesskrift på 80-årsdagen av hans födelse
2012 (Swedish)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
This book is a commemorative publication, with annotated, posthumously published material, in honor of Professor Bo Gustafsson on the 80th anniversary of his birth. Gustafsson was a professor at the Department of Economic History 1977−2000 at Uppsala University and one of the discipline’s most prominent figures during the late 20th century. The title “Research and Politics” refers to his political and publishing activity in 1960's and the 70’s left-wing movement and to his academic legacy up to the time of his death. His life and work are presented initially in an essay by Lars Magnusson, and thereafter for the first time Bo Gustafsson’s unfinished autobiography is published. The bulk of the book, however, is made up of his posthumously published essay, “The Transition from Domestic Industries to Factories” on the emergence of mechanized cotton spinning in the 18th century. It is a weighty contribution to the debate on the origins of the factory system in England and is presented in an introduction by Klas Nyberg. Finally Bo Gustafsson’s bibliography, compiled by Larisa Oldireva Gustafsson, is published.
