Worlds of Work: Building an International Sociology of Workby Daniel B. Cornfield
Synopses & Reviews
The advent of transnational economic production and market integration compels sociologists of work to look beyond traditional national boundaries and build an international sociology of work in order to effectively address the human, scientific, and practical challenges posed by global economic transnationalism. The purpose of this volume is to promote transnational dialogue about the sociology of work and help build a truly international discipline in this field.
Book News Annotation:
Contributors from many countries with a wide variety of economic systems promote transnational dialogue about the sociology of work and the establishment of an international discipline in it, arguing that the study of work and the workplace has been central to the development of sociological theory. They describe both the commonalities and distinctive characteristics of the sociology of work as it is practiced across different national settings.
