Work in America: An Encyclopedia of History, Policy, and Society
Publisher: ABC-CLIO | ISBN: 1576076768 | edition 2003 | PDF | 780 pages | 11,6 mb

Grade 9 Up–In this comprehensive overview of the evolution of labor, more than 250 succinct entries, ranging in length from a paragraph to several pages, discuss the cultural, economic, and political aspects of work and its impact on society. Although the 60-page index is only available in volume two, each book begins with an alphabetical and a topical listing of entries. Included are discussions of major social movements, such as capitalism, communism, and democratic socialism, and how they helped to shape our view of work; profiles of individuals; and some surprises such as the article on the comic strip "Dilbert." How technology has and continues to change work is demonstrated with exemplary entries on Amazon.com, the dot-com revolution, and e-commerce. The intent to include all aspects of work is established with discussions as varied as the mommy track, work in film, and cowboys. Each signed entry includes see-also references and suggestions for further reading. Pertinent black-and-white photos and illustrations enhance the clear text. This well-documented resource concludes with a five-page time line, charts, and other useful material.
