Work, Employment and Society
"This vibrant, thought-provoking book brings the insights ofsocial-science to business studies. With accessible language andillustrations, it introduces classical and contemporary theoriesand shows how they shape our understanding of the world of work,organizations and business, including topical issues such as theenvironment, neoliberal policy, changing technologies and globalinterdependencies. It is one of the most comprehensive andimaginative contributions to the study of work, employment andsociety that I have read. I have no doubt this highly original bookwill become one of the most important texts in the sociology ofwork and business studies for years to come."
Anna Pollert, University of the West of England
"This impressive introductory text offers a refreshingly clearapproach to understanding the contested role of business insociety. Accessible and engaging in equal measure, and avoiding thepitfalls of shallow oversimplification, the book will appeal tostudents in both sociology and business and management studies, andprovide a breath of fresh air for their teachers."
