Description
"This collection of essays explores the relationship between sociology and economics with specific focus on work structures and markets... The essays illustrate the limitations of the conventional approaches in the respective disciplines... The book assumes some familiarity with basic concepts in each discipline. Its level of difficulty is most suited to advanced students or faculty having an interest in theoretical and methodological issues." --R. L. Hogler, Choice "[T]his volume is very good and should have a significant impact. I can recommend it to students of organizations, labor markets, and social stratification. The theoretical articles make some economic views on the labor market accessible to sociologists and draw relevant comparisons to sociological viewpoints... The empirical articles... are standard sociological treatments of social stratification and industrial organization." --Trond Petersen, Contemporary Sociology "Industries, Firms, and Jobs undertakes the difficult but important task of integrating sociological and economic perspectives on employment... Industries, Firms, and Jobs is likely to interest anyone studying employment. The book discusses some exciting new issues and approaches and reminds researchers of the importance of some old problems that remain unsolved." --Alison Davis-Blake, Administrative Science Quarterly "[T]he essays are uniformly first-rate. As such, they should be considered as "must reading" for both labor economists and organizational behavior sociologists who are concerned with the intellectual content and the future direction of their fields." --Vernon M. Briggs, Jr., Social Forces
