"Among those who teach the Sociology of Work and Occupations, it is no secret that few textbooks or edited collections of readings appear to be specifically written for such courses. Rudi Volti helps fill that void with an accessible paperback textbook that is about half the length (and price) of many comprehensive textbooks in a variety of fields within sociology. This readerfriendly book covers a wide range of topics and sets the stage for discussion of controversial issues from a variety of perspectives, and that is just what the author intended."(Carol J.
