THE SOCIAL ORGANIZATION OF WORK, Fifth Edition, follows a simple structure and uses clear writing to present the material you need in an easily accessible format. This text discusses the most current and hotly debated issues, from the technology revolution to women's issues to the globalization of today's workforce.
This textbook on the sociology of work discusses the role of technology, class relations, gender, race and ethnicity, and globalization, while focusing on the analytic tools needed to understand such themes. It presents competing theoretical positions on current controversies and describes the history of work itself (as well as the history of its study). The impact of work on families, the role of labor unions, the high-tech workplace, the service industry, the role of managers, and the emergence of large corporations are discussed in detail. Sullivan teaches at Ohio State University; Hodson at the University of Texas at Austin. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
