The seventh edition of Sociology, Work and Organisation is outstandingly effective in explaining how we can use the sociological imagination to understand the nature of institutions of work, organisations, occupations, management and employment and how they are changing in the twenty-first century. Intellectual and accessible, it is unrivalled in the breadth of its coverage and its authoritative overview of both traditional and emergent themes in the sociological study of work and organisation. The direction and implications of trends in technological change are fully considered and the book recognises the extent to which these trends are intimately related to changing patterns of inequality in modern societies and to the changing experiences of individuals and families. Key features of the text are: clear structure; ‘key issue’ guides and summaries with each chapter; identification of key concepts throughout the book; unrivalled glossary and concept guide; rich illustrative snapshots or ‘mini cases’ throughout the book. This text engages with cutting-edge debates and makes conceptual innovations without any sacrifice to clarity or accessibility of style. It will appeal to a wide audience, including undergraduates, postgraduates and academics working or studying in the area of work and the organisation of work, as well as practitioners working in the area of human resources and management generally.

Since the mid to late 1990s, there have been continual and recurring episodes of industrial action of various kinds involving social workers, teachers, lecturers, nurses, hospital ancillary staff, nursery nurses, home helps and local authority librarians among others. There are an increasing number of studies devoted to an examination of New Labour's social policies. However, there has been little in the way of substantive discussion of opposition to and conflict around key elements of New Labour's agenda for the welfare state and public sector, from those who are involved in the frontline implementation and delivery of welfare policies.

This book makes a significant contribution to current debates about the future of work, by investigating how the conceptual and practical aspects of work combine to form a work paradigm. It is argued that economic stability depends upon a satisfactory equilibrium between the way work is organized in practice and the attribution of meaning and purpose to that work. Beginning with an analysis of the criteria applied in defining work and of the basic principles which underlie human productive activity, the book analyses the internal dynamics which govern the formation of the work paradigm. It is argued that the current concept of work has become increasingly outdated in the face of rapid technological change, and increases in job insecurity, thus creating a critical disequilibrium within the work paradigm. The book concludes that the satisfactory emergence of a new equilibrium will require a thorough reassessment of what we mean by 'work'.
