The third edition of this best-selling textbook has been carefully revised to provide an up-to-date, indispensable introduction to the sociology of work. It not only includes clear explanations of classic theories and evidence, but also covers the most cutting-edge research, data, and debates. In addition to being revised throughout, the book contains substantive new sections on globalisation, including global branding and slave labour, and a new chapter on the myths and realities of modern employment.
Chapter-by-chapter, Keith Grint examines different sociological approaches to work, emphasising the links between social processes, the institutions of employment, and their social and domestic contexts. His use of an international range of empirical evidence helps to make his account especially accessible to undergraduate readers. The book has been specially designed to support students’ understanding, and to develop their critical responses to the literature. Written in a lively and accessible style, it provides student-friendly chapter summaries, suggestions for further reading, a glossary and practice essay questions.
This third edition will be essential reading for students of the sociology of work, industrial sociology, organisational behaviour and industrial relations. Students studying business and management courses with a sociological component will also find the book invaluable.

Keith Grint, Professor of Leadership Studies and Director of the Lancaster Leadership Centre, Lancaster UniversityReview:
"There is simply no better comprehensive introduction to the sociological approaches to work and contemporary trends within the workplace. Keith Grint’s text is a thoughtful and comprehensive guide for the student and a useful resource for those more familiar with the field."Richard J. Badham, Macquarie Graduate School of Management
"This third edition of The Sociology of Work will be an invaluable resource for students seeking a sociological introduction to the rapidly changing world of work and employment. The text provides some excellent and succinct definitions of key terms and good introductions to relevant theoretical approaches. Some of the highly contemporary empirical material will enable students to connect theoretical debate with the lived experience of work."
