John McDermott's book was  published in 2004 by  University of Michigan 
Press. The publisher has a very nice feature called "Look Inside"
which allows you to see many parts of this book:

General product info is at:

McDermott is a Professor Emeritus at SUNY (it doesn't say what campus:
do you know Paul Z?) and (former?) member of the editorial board of
the _Review of Radical Political Economics_.

On the back cover, there are endorsements from 3, including Gary M,
who wrote:

"John McDermott's thought-provoking and ambitious book challenges 
conventional notions of how labor market economies function and
evolve.  Drawing on Marx, Gramsci, and Schumpeter, McDermott
presents a detailed and sociologically nuanced account of the 
market process -- one that is at odds with the 'spontaneous order'
hypothesis of Popper and Hayek. This book will spark much debate."

Where has the debate been, Gary?

In solidarity, Jerry
