"A concise, useful compilation of key topics and issues relevant to work."
A very good book with lots of information that can be used to set up assignments and discussion. As a teacher I have found this a good basis of information and a start point to set up and challenge opinion

This is a very usable overview of key concepts in the sociology of work.
I'l recommend the book as a reference book
This text is helpful for undergraduates studying organisations, and managers on postgraduate courses.It provides short, readable sections on all of the major HRM areas. A well written text.
A real classic in the making - gives both broad and in depth analysis that encourages debate and reflective practice.
