Review:

From the reviews:
"[...]invaluable contribution to internationalizing the sociology of work. Divided into sections that cover the Americas, Asia, Arica and the Pacific, and Europe, these essays examine this diverse field from a social, historical, and institutional perspective. Important topics include globalization, the gendering of work, workers and workplaces, the analysis of restructuring, and the examination of nonstandard employment arrangements. Out of this mix comes an interesting snapshot of a field of study in transition and its diverse intellectual traditions."
(Choice, 40:4, 2002)
"Cornfield and Hodson have managed to assemble a varied and interesting collection of national accounts that prove fascinating in their own right. However, the editors add value by heroically drawing out some of the similarities and differences in institutional contexts and in research themes and approaches, and the extent to which globalization is changing work organization."
(International Sociology, 18:2)
"In summary, this book provides an interesting and well-organized summary of historical and contemporary research into the many facets of work. As such, it is a valuable resource for occupational scientists who are interested in work, employment, unemployment, trade unions, or the work of sociology."
(Peter Williamson, Journal of Occupational Science, 10:2)
"Readers of Labour & Industry would be particularly interested in the relationship between the sociology of work and industrial relations, which has been a feature of nearly every country in the book.  Each chapter contains a concluding section outlining the institutional context of the sociology of work, as well as extensive references to the literature, much of which is in languages other than English."
(Jim Kitay; Labour & Industry, 14:2)
