Summary
"Changing attitudes, living patterns and technologies are transforming our relationship with work in such fundamental ways that tomorrow's workplace will be barely recognisable to that of our parents. To help us make sense of these changes Richard Donkin has examined the forces and themes that are influencing what amounts to a silent revolution in social behaviour. Donkin argues that this change is creating a watershed in working lives as significant as that of the factory system that heralded the Industrial Revolution. Unless we understand these forces, he warns, policies may be poorly fitted to meet the challenges ahead posed by environmental change and shrinking oil reserves.In this timely book, Donkin presents a cohesive argument for policy reform, not only in employment, but also in outdated economic assumptions that are no longer meeting the needs of a resource-hungry world"--Provided by publisher
