It includes chapters on the nature of work and industrial relations which contain material on the sociology of trade unions, strikes and work-place democracy. It focuses on people and organizations and explains key terms in organizational theory, the theory of the firm, work motivation, alienation and poor morale.With further material on changing occupational structures and business enterprises of the future, together with questions, case study and project material at the end of each chapter, Sociology for Business will be the most comprehensive and well organized book available on the sociology of business.
