Abstract/Summary This book is about the ways in which new information and communication technologies have enabled changes in the way work is organised in contemporary society. The book takes up two major themes about new technologies that may be briefly summarised as follows: a critical response to those accounts that accord to technology an independent role in determining workplace change; an emphasis on the social processes that influence the way that technology is utilised in the workplace; and a focus on the manner in which technological developments have been applied in quite different ways to different segments of the employed population.
