This text brings together the work of contemporary scholars to explore the changing nature of work, employment relations, occupations, and organizations in the context of the global economy. Its purpose is to provide a map of what is happening to people at work across a wide array of settings. To this end, the map is informed by a broad range of theoretical perspectives — such as varieties of institutional theory and radical political economy as developed by European, American, Australasian, and other scholars. But the book does not claim to deliver just a map: it also claims to be a reliable map of a definite terrain. In order to deliver this, it draws on empirical research from many disciplines, including industrial and economic sociology, psychology, organization studies, industrial and labor relations, and economics.
