This is a highly readable and approachable account of the sociology of work. With the additional material included in this new edition, Edgell brings the topic squarely into the 21st Century. The book provides excellent coverage of many of the key debates within the field in a lucid, yet succinct manner. All of the principal issues and controversies are placed into historical perspective, with a consistent focus on key developments, transitions, continuities and discontinuities within patterns of work and employment.
This is an essential book for students, teachers, researchers and the general public, who are interested in the state-of-the-art approaches to the sociology of work.
I need this book for explaining market integration and skills from a sociological perspective. I read it and it is a conclusive and thorough book in sociology of work.
The Sociology of Work is a useful introductory text, exploring many of the main areas and themes within this area of Sociology.
The book explores the significant social changes and how these changes have influenced the world of work. The chapter summaries are particularly useful in providing students with an overview of the areas explored throughout the book.
A useful book.
An excellent text that covers historical, contemporary and likely future issues concerning work in society. The text provides a solid foundation and knowledge-base that is comprehensive in its own terms but will be of enormous help in assisting students of HRM to understand the challenges of people management in contemporary society. The emphasis on considering moral, social as well as organisational issues comes through strongly in this text which will develop the thinking, analytical and evaluative of students.
