From the Publisher"Should be placed high on relevant reading lists, as an informative, persuasive, practical vaccine against banality and bias in OB and HRM."
Work, Employment and Society
"This vibrant, thought-provoking book brings the insights of social-science to business studies. With accessible language and illustrations, it introduces classical and contemporary theories and shows how they shape our understanding of the world of work, organizations and business, including topical issues such as the environment, neoliberal policy, changing technologies and global interdependencies. It is one of the most comprehensive and imaginative contributions to the study of work, employment and society that I have read. I have no doubt this highly original book will become one of the most important texts in the sociology of work and business studies for years to come."
Anna Pollert, University of the West of England
"This impressive introductory text offers a refreshingly clear approach to understanding the contested role of business in society. Accessible and engaging in equal measure, and avoiding the pitfalls of shallow oversimplification, the book will appeal to students in both sociology and business and management studies, and provide a breath of fresh air for their teachers."
Paul du Gay, University of Warwick
