A critical, in-depth, analytical analysis offering a distinctive perspective, this well respected, rigorous and authoritative text has been updated to include the latest international research and practice. The 4th edition includes new material on contemporary topics such as; performance management, emotional and aesthetic labour, resistance and misbehaviour at work, new developments in corporate structures and labour markets, and work life balance. There is a new chapter on knowledge and improved pedagogy, making it more student friendly, we have also developed a companion website to support both the student and lecturer. Incorporating a wealth of empirical research this unique approach puts organisations in a socio-economic context, and covers psychological material, as well as broader issues, and provides students with a thorough understanding of the nature of work and organisations.
