This book asks what might be required of "a new sociology of work" and why such a project is vital for understanding people's working lives at the start of the twenty-first century. A collection of essays examining the concept of work, questioning what constitutes work, and where work ends and other activities begin. Acknowledges the work that goes on outside formal employment, in the family, the community and within various institutions. Highlights the importance of understanding the broad range of experiences of work in order to provide a more meaningful account of people's work practices. Draws on studies which explore how localized temporal, temporal and socio-economic factors shape people's experiences. The editors develop a distinctive theoretical framework and draw together key conclusions and policy recommendations.
