    Abstract

    Work Matters brings together a strong collection of narratives from the ethnographic field to discover the reality of pressure and change in the modern workplace. Chapter-by-chapter, experts in the field of work and employment examine empirical accounts and explain the forces shaping today's organisations through a critical, contemporary perspective. The result is a powerful compendium of voices that will provoke a reassessment of work trends and inform the future of policy and managerial practice.
