About this book

Introduction

In this highly successful text, Paul Thompson and David McHugh evaluate the most up-to-date theory and research, bringing together and contrasting conventional and critical approaches from organisational studies, management studies, labour process theory and social psychology. Major changes in the world of work organisations are located in their economic and political contexts and with respect to their practical effects. Emphasis is placed upon redefining the behavioural agenda to focus on issues of subjectivity and identity, to complement the analysis of structure, power and control.
