Book Description

This study, first published in 1958, explores the behaviour of industrial workers in a social context. By interviewing and observing workers in factories in Melbourne, the author examines the worker’s evaluation of work, work satisfaction, relationships and friendships within the workplace, and the worker’s place in society. This title will be of interest to students of psychology, sociology and business studies.
