The Jobless Future: Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

High technology will destroy more jobs than it creates. This grim prediction was first published in the 1994 edition of The Jobless Future, an eerily accurate title that could have been written for today's dismal economic climate. Fully updated and with a new introduction by Stanley Aronowitz and William DiFazio, The Jobless Future warns that jobs as we know them-long-term, with benefits-are an endangered species.

About the Author

Stanley Aronowitz is distinguished professor of sociology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He is the author of numerous books, including Paradigm Lost (Minnesota, 2002).

William DiFazio is professor and chair of the sociology department at St. John's University, New York. He is the author of Ordinary Poverty.
