Work and Workers

Work and Workers

Three Volume Set
Edited by:

December 2005 | 1 496 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This is an exciting time for researchers who study work. Not only has work changed dramatically over the last half century, but further dramatic changes are continuing to occur today. Developing economies have become centres of manufacturing, while developed economies have shifted toward services, knowledge and information. New telecommunications technology has accelerated globalization. Workers have gained more education and information-processing skills, and knowledge workers and information workers have replaced manual production workers within manufacturing. New kinds of knowledge-intense and information-intense organizations have emerged that are devoted entirely to the production, processing and distribution of information. A lot has changed.

This three volume set maps these changes and provides the seminal articles illustrating writing and research about "work" at the beginning of the new millennium.

Cary Cooper and Bill Starbuck, along with an advisory board of eminent scholars have arranged the articles in nine categories, in each of which some of the most influential articles have been chosen to offer researchers an excellent grounding in the warren of information on work and workers. The Editors provide a full introduction and a clear path through these sections, enabling the reader to achieve a coherent understanding of how work is changing, and how workers affect and are affected by these contexts.

This collection will be an invaluable resource to academics and researchers in Business and Management, particularly Human Resource Management, Organizational Behaviour, Organizational Psychology, but equally indispensable for Industrial Sociology, the Sociology of Work.

The SAGE Library in Business and Management is a first-class series of major works that brings together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in a number of key areas of research and inquiry in Business and Management.

Each multi-volume set represents a collection of the essential published works collated from the foremost publications in the field by an Editor or Editorial Team of renowned international stature. They include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the discipline's past, present and likely future.

This series is designed to be a 'gold standard' for university libraries throughout the world with a programme or interest in Business and Management Studies.
