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.
