This book examines the relationship between the experience of employment and changing organizational forms, boundaries and the context of work. It explores a range of critical sociological and political economy processes in the context of workplace restructuring, employment and labour market regulation in the wider community. Of significant importance are the themes of gendered and ethically embedded labour markets for young people, trade union and local activism, gendered identity in management, market turbulence and call centres. The book offers an international perspective that includes chapters based on case work from the UK and Turkey.
