Industrial Work and Life: An Anthropological Reader is a comprehensive anthropological overview of industrialisation in both Western and non-Western societies. Based on contemporary and historical ethnographic material, the book unpacks the 'world of industry' in the context of the shop floor, the family, and the city, revealing the rich social and political texture underpinning economic development. It also provides a critical discussion of the assumptions that inform much of the social science literature on industrialization and industrial 'modernity.' The reader is divided into four thematic sections, each with a clear and informative introduction: historical development of industrial capitalism; shopfloor organization; the relationships between the workplace and the home; the teleology of industrial 'modernity' and working-class consciousness. With readings by key writers from a range of backgrounds and disciplines, Industrial Work and Life is the essential introduction to the study of industrialisation in different societies. It will appeal to students across a wide range of subjects including: anthropology, comparative sociology, social history, development studies, industrial relations and management studies.

With its judicious combination of classic texts and of exciting newer ethnography, together with clearly argued reviews of the wider literature, this volume serves to redefine the anthropology of industrialization and to set out an agenda for teaching and research. -- John Harriss, Professor of International Studies at Simon Fraser University ... an excellent interdisciplinary Reader and at the same time a milestone in social anthropology's engagement with the economy. -- Chris Hann, Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology This comprehensive and accessible volume will prove invaluable not only to scholars interested in the many faces of global capitalism but also to students in a variety of disciplines. An impressive achievement! -- Akhil Gupta, Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles An excellent reader that covers a wide range of examples. -- Dr Emma Jayne Abbots, University of Wales, UK
