The Organization and Experience of Work is the only book in the market that discusses not only the organization of work, but the experience of work in Canada. It blends a discussion of trends in work and its organization with the rich ethnographic and case study literature that illuminates what workers do, how what they do affects them, and how they feel about their work. It brings much more attention to the ways in which work is shaped by gender and race, and the extent to which work creates and reinforces social inequalities by race, class and gender, than other books available. The Organization and Experience of Work provides a more comprehensive review of the Canadian literature on work than has been assembled elsewhere and puts Canadian experiences and trends in an international context.
