Cinema frequently depicts various types of work, but this representation is never straightforward. It depends on and reflects many factors, especially the place and time the film is made and the type of audience it addresses. Here, the contributors employ transnational and transhistorical perspectives to compare filmic depictions of work.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a timely and stimulating book. It shows, convincingly and compellingly, that far from simply ignoring work, cinema has probed and investigated it in original and important ways. The book explores cinematic history but is, above all, of the current moment. At its most productive when it brings together contemporary theories of work with careful close analysis of films, it is required reading for anyone interested in the representation of work and associated subjectivities." - Martin O'Shaughnessy, Professor of Film Studies, Nottingham Trent University, UK
