The last twenty-five years of the twentieth century was a period of extraordinary change in organizations and the economies of the developed world. The Oxford Handbook of Work and Organization aims to bring together, present, and discuss what is currently known about work and organizations and their connection to broader economic change in Europe and America. Issues of conceptualization are not neglected, but in contrast to other comparable volumes, the emphasis is firmly on what is known and what has been observed by researchers. The volume contains a range of theoretically informed essays, in work, occupations, and organizations. It constitutes an invaluable overview of the accumulated understanding of research into work, occupations, and organizations in recent decades.[from dust jacket]
