Social Organization of Work / Edition 4by Randy Hodson
Pub. Date: 07/24/2007
Publisher: Cengage Learning
The authors combine their key areas of interest, industrial sociology, occupations, and professions, to present a unified view of the sociology of work. The text's analytical approach to the study of work not only identifies and discusses substantive issues, but also allows students the opportunity to better develop analysis, reasoning, and argumentative skills. Chapter topics are discussed within the framework of the text's key five themes: technology; global perspectives; class relations; gender; and race. The world of work, how it is changing, and the implications of these changes for individuals and families is thoroughly explored in this contemporary and student relevant text.
