Fifteen provocative articles by leading scholars of work and occupations show how such occupations as police work, middle management, taxi driving, nursing, and the building trade are responding to cultural, organizational, occupational and client pressures for change. How these pressures work and what causes them are also analyzed from a viewpoint that looks at the distribution of power among different types of industry and workers.

'Scholars and students of work and occupations should find this volume useful and interesting, and a refreshing respite from books that claim to provide all the answers.' -- Contemporary Sociology, Vol 13 No 1, January 1984
