Download File ---> https://climmulponorc.blogspot.com/?c=2tDdB2





The simple act of going to work every day is an integral part of all societies across the globe. It is an ingrained social contract: we all work to survive. But it goes beyond physical survival. Psychologists have equated losing a job with the trauma of divorce or a family death, and enormous issues arise, from financial panic to sinking self-esteem. Through work, we build our self-identity, our lifestyle, and our aspirations. How did it come about that work dominates so many parts of our lives and our psyche? This multi-disciplinary encyclopedia covers curricular subjects that seek to address that question, ranging from business and management to anthropology, sociology, social history, psychology, politics, economics, and health.


International and comparative coverage; 335 signed entries, A-to-Z, fill 2 volumes in print and electronic formats; Cross-References and Suggestions for Further Readings guide readers to additional resources; A Chronology provides students with historical perspective of the sociology of work; In the electronic version, the comprehensive Index combines with the Cross-References and thematic Reader's Guide themes to provide robust search-and-browse capabilities.

"This internationally authored two-volume set treats an area of sociological research infrequently examined in depth by reference resources....The goal of this encyclopedia is "to comprehensively identify the numerous factors ... that create, sustain and characterize work organizations and social relations' within the US and 15 other industrial societies worldwide....This is a valuable resource for libraries supporting undergraduate and graduate programs in the social sciences and business. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers."


The sociology of work emerged as a specialty area in the 1980s, when the American Sociological Association prepared a compendium of course syllabi for the area and a number of textbooks appeared. The name of this sociological subfield is new, but the general area is not. The sociology of work represents an integration of two long-standing specialties: industrial sociology and occupations/professions. It also draws from industrial and organizational psychologists and sociologists' attempts to integrate stratification and organization literatures to better understand the employment relationship.
