Work and Society is an important new text about the sociology of work and employment. It provides both undergraduate and postgraduate students of sociology, business and politics, with a firm and enjoyable foundation to this fascinating area of sociology, giving comprehensive coverage of traditional areas of the sub-discipline as well as new trends and developments.

The book is divided into three complementary and interconnected sections - investigating work, work and social change and understanding work. These sections allow readers to explore themes, issues and approaches by examining how sociologists have thought about, and researched work and how the sub-discipline has been influenced by wider society itself. Novel features include separate chapters on researching work, domestic work, unemployment and work, and the representation of work in literary and visual media.

Industry Reviews

As both the nature and organization of work changes, so does sociology as it becomes more interdisciplinary. At this defining moment, "Work and Society" provides a thoughtful and accessible study that helps us rethink and expand sociological approaches to the study of modern workplaces. "John Russo and Sherry Linkon, "Center for Working-Class Studies"
