This text introduces the reader to a sociological perspective on industrial society, aimed at students (both within and outside the social sciences) who seek a general understanding of the social consequences of economic change. Since it assumes that most of its readers will eventually end up working in management, the book focuses upon the business enterprise and social relationships within it, aiming to provide a general background which will lay the foundations for more detailed study of organizational processes and the problems of management. It thus presents a sociological perspective on modern societies for the general reader/non-specialist reader. It focuses on the economy and on business enterprise and provides a general background and foundation for further, more detailed study.
