Stephen Sweet, Dana Professor of Sociology, published a fourth edition of Changing Contours of Work: Jobs and Opportunities in the New Economy, an exploration of the American workplace in the larger context of an integrated global economy.  

The book is part of Sage Press Sociology for a New Century Series.  Presented with engaging vignettes and rich data, this fourth edition shows the reader how the "old economy" is now operating within the "new economy" and how that integration shapes the development of work opportunities. Authors Stephen Sweet and Peter Meiksins use an international comparative perspective, revealing the historical transformations of work and identifying the profound effects that these changes have had on lives, jobs, and life chances. This text supports the reader's understanding of the origins of current problems confronting working people in the new economy, and contributes to a much-needed dialogue about the strategies for liberating workers from poverty, drudgery, discrimination, stress, and exploitation. The authors are proud sponsors of the 2020 SAGE Keith Roberts Teaching Innovations Award—enabling graduate students and early career faculty to attend the annual American Sociological Association’s pre-conference teaching and learning workshops.
