ABSTRACT
This article reports, how progressive social research can be conducted without major support from federal or state agencies, or private foundation money. By drawing from two case studies, a managerial style is described and developed. This style elaborates both practical problems and potential benefits associated with unfunded social science research. Special attention is given to the formation of primary group solidarity in research teams, and the importance of cultivating strong relationships with community groups, organized labor, and grass-roots neighborhood organizations. Progressive social researchers organize their efforts toward the establishment of alternatives to normal, everyday, top-down capitalist relations of production. In that sense, they favor the realization of workers' self-management through worker and community owned enterprises and worker self-direction. PSR had found themselves within an international writers' movement, one with historical rootedness in anarcho-syndicalism in Spain, and left social democracy in Sweden, guild socialism in England and Ireland, co-determination in Germany the theory and practice of workers' control in Yugoslavia, employee participation in Canadian work organizations, labors in the U.S. workers' control in the U.S. of post war era and workers' control globally.
