The Politics of Working Life by Paul Edwards, Judy Wajcman

The Politics of Working Life by Paul Edwards, Judy Wajcman
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.2 Mb
Overview: How does the politics of working life shape modern organizations? Is our desire for meaningful, secure work increasingly at odds with corporate behavior in a globalized economy? Does the rise of performance management culture represent an intensification of work, or create opportunities for the freewheeling individual career? This timely and engaging book, by leading authorities in the field, adopts the standpoint of the ‘questioning observer’. It is for those who need an informed account of work that is accessible without being superficial. The book is unique in its multi-dimensional approach, weaving together analysis of individual work experience, political processes in organizations, and the wider context of the social structuring of markets. The book identifies central questions about working experience and answers them in a direct and lively manner. It has a strong analytical foundation based on a political economy framework, giving particular weight to the contradictory character of organizations. Here contradictions turn on the competing demands placed on organizations and the different political projects of groups within them. This perspective integrates the chapters and permits numerous scholarly debates to be addressed – including those on identity projects, gender and work, power and participation, escalation in decision-making, and the meaning of corporate social responsibility. This book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate classes in Organizational Behavior, Business Strategy and the Sociology of Work and Employment. It will also appeal to the general reader interested in grappling with the complexity of the changing environment of work.

I’m Working On It in Therapy by Gary Trosclair

I’m Working On It in Therapy: How to Get the Most Out of Psychotherapy by Gary Trosclair
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.8 MB
Overview: Learn to get the most out of therapy to unlock your best self.

Millions of Americans will go to therapy this year, but veteran psychotherapist Gary Trosclair believes the vast majority of them will start the process with little to no sense of how to best use their sessions to achieve their goals. Recent research has identified effective client participation as one of the most crucial factors in successful therapy. What can one do to get the most out of their sessions to create lasting positive changes in their lives? What does it look like to “work on it" in therapy?

Trosclair covers these points and more, combining cutting-edge scientific research with years of fascinating anecdotal evidence to create a guide that is as compelling as it is indispensable. It teaches readers how to take off their masks and be real with their therapists, how to deal with emotions that arise in session, how to continue their psychological work outside of sessions, how to know when it’s time to say goodbye to their therapists, and much more.

Serbia’s Working Class in Transition 1988-2013 by Goran Musić

Serbia’s Working Class in Transition 1988-2013 by Goran Musić
Requirements: .PDF reader, 867 KB
Overview: The study “Serbia’s Working Class in Transition 1988-2013” is much more than an analysis of workers mobilizations in Serbia in the past 25 years. Researching the position of workers, the author Goran Musić tackles some of the most complex socio-political problems in Serbian society: The rise of nationalism in the late 1980s, economic collapse and deindustrialization during the wars in the 90s and the period of “transition”, as well as the enforcement of neoliberal ideology as a hegemonic paradigm in Serbian politics. A key question in the study is how these developments have affected the consciousness of workers, and the articulation of their struggles for survival.

Goran Music bases his findings partly on the research he conducted for his doctorial thesis, about the workers’ movement in the former Yugoslavia during the end of the 1980s, at the University of Florence (Italy). The study is one of the few analytical texts which deals with the positions of workers in contemporary Serbian society. We hope it will be instrumental in inspiring further discussions. Other viewpoints on this complex problem are of course possible and should be brought forward. The debate on the position of workers in Serbian society, the articulation of their social and political interests, as well as forms of organization, is more relevant than ever. The global financial and economic crisis has had a particular devastating effect in the Balkans. The economies of the countries in Southeast Europe have been in an ongoing recession or stagnation since 2008. Factories and enterprises are being shut down, the unemployment rate has reached a histor ical peak, austerity measures are being imposed. Neoliberal policies of privatization of the remaining stateowned companies and flexibilization of labor relations to the disadvantage of workers are being enforced.

The economic anatomy and the social effects of the current crisis in the Balkans are similar to the situation of the other countries on the periphery of Europe, whether in the Baltic states, Greece, Spain or Portugal. However there is a stark contrast in the political reaction to the crisis. Especially in Greece, Spain and Portugal we can witness strong protest movements. In Serbia and most of the Balkan states the workers’ movement is silent. This study partly explains why this is the case. But it should also contribute to the building of a new workers’ movement, which is able to react to the enormous challenges facing Serbian society.

Fish and Chips, and the British Working Class by John K. Walton

Fish and Chips, and the British Working Class, 1870-1940 by John K. Walton
Requirements: .PDF reader, 13.8 Mb
Overview: Unlike other institutions of central importance to working-class life, the fish-and-chip trade has not yet been rescued from what the author of this book regards as the massive condescension of posterity. In attempting to begin this process, he traces the origins of what was by 1914 an important national industry, setting the economic, social and political context of the trade, charting its spread and analyzing its sources and methods of supply. The book explores themes like: recruitment patterns of decentralized, provincial trades; methods of working; the role of women in the food industry of the period; and the aim, and effectiveness, of trade organizations. It also provides a survey of the effect of convenient, cheap, ready-cooked food on working-class diet, health, lifestyle, economy and politics.

Working with Winston by Cita Stelzer

Working with Winston: The Unsung Women Behind Britain’s Greatest Statesman by Cita Stelzer
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 43 MB
Overview: An original and insightful look at Winston Churchill through the eyes of those who knew him best-the women who worked with him throughout his life.

All politicians adopt a public persona that they believe contributes to electoral success. Though they might reflect the character of the politician, they reveal only a part of the man. What we know less about are the characteristics that Winston Churchill revealed when he was out of the public eye.

Much has been written about Churchill, and of the important world leaders, politicians, high-ranking military personnel with whom he interacted. But Churchill also required a vast staff to maintain the intense pace at which he worked. When Churchill strode the world stage, the secretarial and support staff positions were inevitably filled by women. Though extraordinarily talented and valuable to Churchill and his work, these women remain unheralded. He was not an easy employer. He was intimidating, with never-ending demands who would impose his relentless and demanding schedules on those around him. And yet these women were devoted to him, though there were times in his political career in which he was decidedly unpopular. Many reflect upon their years working for him as the best years of their lives.
