Description

The consequences of narrow work specialization are critical not only for workers and employers but for civilization as a whole. In The Anatomy of Work, George Friedmann elucidates the large and small questions raised by this evolutionary moment in human labor and development. Donald C. King's introduction to this new edition discusses the impact of Friedmann's work on later researchers and assesses its relative strengths and weaknesses in forecasting future trends, particularly in regard to automation. This is pioneering study on how work is organic to human identity.
