Definitive, critical and engaging, this is a superb introduction to the sociology of work. Edgell and Granter's expert narrative takes us from the cotton mills to the gig economy, and from unpaid domestic chores to visions of a post-work future. Indispensable.
A welcome new edition of Sociology of Work that delivers on the promise to chronicle and to assess continuity and changes in paid and unpaid work over the longue durée. Key themes and theories drive chapters on alienation, the labor process, skill, organizational culture, Fordism, destandarization, and domestic work, culminating in the perfect bookend on work transformations across multiple historical globalizations spanning the global North and South.
The Sociology of Work is an introductory text that is more engaging and coherent than a traditional textbook. It provides an accessible entry point into the field, covering a vast literature and counterposing competing theories and perspectives, but within a systematic analytical framework and narrative.
A valuable overview of the sociology of work that effectively introduces students to key topics and debates
An excellent book that is accessible and comprehensive for students studying the sociology of work. Straightforward writing in key concepts makes this accessible for students new to the sociology of work.
The book provides an excellent overview of topics that are central to the course, namely managing culture at work, industrial work, service work and non-standard work. The analysis is more in-depth than what is offered in standard OB books.
This is a comprehensive and well written academic text. It is both sturdy and stealthy for any student interested in 'work', which fortunately amounts to quite a few... thanks for writing.
