Book News Annotation:

From the viewpoint that the only injustices that count are those that one considers unfair, Dubet (sociology, U. Victor-Segalan, Bordeaux, France) presents his interview-based analysis of French workers' experience of justice/injustice in the workplace in the context of theories expressed in The Sociology of Experience (1994). Among his conclusions are that individuals often assume a balanced position of multiple, tolerable inequities between those experienced firsthand and general inequalities of the world; the average person tends to believe in "equal pay for equal work" more than such philosophers as Marx; and injustices such as personal merit going unrecognized are attributed to human nature being naturally selfish. The book includes interview excerpts. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Though it is difficult to describe what a just world should be, everyone is able to denounce injustice when he/she is a victim or a witness of it. Based on a long-term study of workers, this new book tests and expands upon prevailing theories of justice by Rawls, Nozick, Taylor, Walzer, and other important philosophers.Injustice at Work describes the way workers perceive social injustice. It reveals why they so often feel unequal, scorned, dominated, and alienated at work. The book develops three principles of justice-equality, merit, and autonomy-showing how individuals combine them in singular moral and social experiences that constitute people's relation to society. Dubet also shows, in a liberal and globalized society, why it has become more and more difficult to denounce the social causes of injustice and fight them.
