Work has been changing. One reason it has been changing is that the contexts of work have been changing. Macroeconomic and societal conditions place limitations and expectations on what work should do; technologies alter what is possible; relations between employers and employees become more or less amicable. As work has changed, its consequences have also changed. Work brings together the most important and influential articles in the field which cover the long-term trends of the contexts and consequences of work at the beginning of the new millenium. The volumes span diverse topics and methodologies. The editors have scanned decades of literature to pick nearly 60 exemplars of excellent research and scholarship on work. These offer insight into recent changes in the contexts of work, while also being extremely valuable as suggestions about how research might fruitfully go forward. The articles are arranged in two categories, each of which has several subtopics: articles in "Contexts of Work" look mainly at the situations in which work takes place, and articles on "Consequences of Work" ask what fruits come from work. Of course, these categories are inter-linked: the consequences of work depend on the contexts of work, and conversely, feedback paths make the contexts of work depend on the consequences of work. The Editors provide a clear path through these sections, enabling the reader to achieve a coherent understanding of what Work has come to be, and where it may be going. The SAGE Library in Business and Management is a first-class series of major works that brings together the most influential and field-defining articles, both classical and contemporary, in a number of key areas of research and inquiry in Business and Management. Each multi-volume set represents a collection of the essential published works collated from the foremost publications in the field by an Editor or Editorial Team of renowned international stature. They include a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and mapping out the discipline's past, present and likely future. This series is designed to be a 'gold standard' for university libraries throughout the world with a programme or interest in Business and Management Studies.
