Review

“The discussion of jobs, human capital, and credentials is practical and engaging!”

 

(Deborah Barnes-Drummond 2011-04-27)

“The book's strengths are the depth of historical analysis punctuated by statistics and relevant references, its nice, easy-to-read flow, and its subtle sense of humor. Volti's book covers all the important aspects of work.”

 

(Elena Gabor 2011-04-27)

“I really appreciate the fact that Volti's text is well-written and very accessible to undergraduate students.”

The author of this book really provides an excellent insight to the inner workings of current workforce in the world. Introduces various sociological concepts to help understand the nature of work and occupations. Easy read and very thorough.
