Sociology, Work, and Industry

Synopsis

In the third edition of this successful and popular text, Tony Watson explains how the discipline of sociology can contribute to our wider understanding of the variety of work practices and institutions which exist in modern societies. He travels the full journey from the founding ideas of the discipline to post-modernist departures and develops all the main areas: occupations; organizations; work experience; industrial relations; industrial society and theory. The book ends with a thoroughly revised chapter covering the major questions of how work experience and global patterns of relationships are changing now and may change in the future.
