Summary
  • "This book presents an analysis of both paid and unpaid work time, integrating a discussion of overwork, underwork, shortening the working week, and flexible work practices. From the broad perspective of social economics, time at work is determined within a complex web of evolving culture and social relations, as well as market, technological, and macroeconomic forces, and institutions such as collective bargaining and government policy. Using a variety of new data sources, the authors review the latest trends on working time in numerous countries, provide theoretical perspectives on both overwork and underemployment, and appraise various public and workplace policies."
  • "This international and interdisciplinary volume will be of interest to both scholars and students, as well as practitioners and advocates in the policy arena."--Jacket
