The Struggle Over Work: The 'End of Work' and Employment Alternatives in Post-Industrial Societies

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The future of work in advanced industrial democracies is the subject of intense debate and public concern. Despite predictions that working hours would fall and leisure time would rise as society progressed, the opposite has in fact occurred. This new book contains a twofold investigation into 'the end of work' with theoretical and policy angles contributing to the growing research field on the boundaries of economics and sociology.
