'This collection represents the most current and most critical view on the world of work that there is'. - Thomas Klikauer, Transfer: European Review of Labour and Research 'This volume stands out as one of the periodic paradigm 'stock taking' exercises. As a collection, Working Life is at its strongest when its contributions are confronting the new realities of work and chiefly the changes that have been wrought on work, workers and organizing by the shift to a service economy and by the globalization of economic activity. In so doing the continuing relevance of LPT [Labour Process Theory] is placed on open display...' - Bob Russell, Relations Industrielles/Industrial Relations , vol 66, no 1, 2011 'Working Life: Renewing Labour Process Analysis is an absorbing and valuable book that critically examines the changing world of work [...] This is essential reading for academics interested in LPT, industrial relations and the sociology of work, and is particularly relevant with the aftermath of the economic crisis, proving once again that work matters.' Andrew Smith, Industrial Relations Journal, vol 43, no 1, 2012
