In this update of the 2007 text, Volti (emeritus, sociology, Pitzer College, Claremont, California) incorporates new data on the links between work and occupations and themes in sociological inquiry. Following a history of the evolution of modern bureaucratic organizations, he provides expanded coverage of the positive and negative impacts of globalization and technology on the workplace, and the continuing relevance of worker race, ethnicity, and gender. Given the centrality of work to identity, his discussion of socialization and workplace cultures is especially timely in this period of high unemployment. Suitable for upper-level undergraduate courses in the sociology of work, economics, organizational behavior, and human resources management, the text includes discussion questions and a glossary.
