From the Publisher
"This new text provides a remarkably comprehensive overview of the world of work, rich in its coverage of diverse disciplinary perspectives, and offering historical, contemporary and future-oriented accounts of working patterns and controversies. And it does what many texts claim and few deliver – that is, it pays detailed attention to issues of gender and race as well as class."
Jill Rubery, Manchester Business School
"A magnificent new edition that manages to combine key theories, analysis of contemporary changes in the service economy and speculation about the future of work – all in an admirably accessible style. An indispensable text for students of labour geography as well as for sociologists of work and employment."
Linda McDowell, University of Oxford
