In this ground-breaking book, Guy Standing offers a new perspective on work and citizenship, rejecting the labourist orientation of the 20th century. Karl Polanyi's The Great Transformation marked the rise of industrial citizenship, which hinged on fictitious labour decommodification. Since the 1970s, this has collapsed and a Global Transformation is under way, in which inequalities and insecurities are becoming unsustainable. Guy Standing explains that while a struggle against paternalism is essential, the desirable egalitarian response to the problems caused by globalization is a strategy to build occupational citizenship. This is based on a right to universal economic security and institutions to enable everybody to develop their capabilities and work whilst respecting the ecological imperatives of the 21st century. The book also explores a phasing out of labour law and a re-orientation of collective bargaining towards collaborative bargaining, highlighting the increased importance of the relationship between groups of workers and citizens as well as between workers and capital. Work after Globalization offers a new perspective on work, rejecting the labourist orientation of the 20th century. Social scientists interested in globalization and labour market issues will warmly welcome this book. It will also strongly appeal to students, researchers, policy-makers, social activists and those connected with the international regulation of occupations.

Recensioner i media

'. . . this book is a tour de force, providing a provocative analysis as well as a vision, rooted in normative reflection for a better world to work in. It should be mandatory reading for all students of social policy and industrial relations.' -- Martin Seeleib-Kaiser, Journal of Social Policy 'This is a scholarly and erudite work. . . There is a wealth of detail, all illustrated with plenty of fascinating examples. . . It is impossible to give the full flavour of this thoughtful and stimulating book in even a long review, but it deserves to be widely accessible and read.' -- Citizen's Income '. . . this is the greatest book ever about work (in all its forms). . . Work after Globalization offers us the kind of foundation we need to launch a new social-democratic program. . . do yourself a favour, don't take my word for it. You need to read this book for yourself. . . If you're ever going to read a book about work, make it this one.'
