This engaging new text uses a feminist lens to crack open the often hidden worlds of gender and work, addressing enduring questions about how structural inequalities are produced and why they persist. Making visible the social relationships that drive the global economy, the book explores how economic transformations not only change the way we work, but how we live our lives. The full extent of changing patterns of employment and the current financial crisis cannot be fully understood in the confines of narrow conceptions of work and economy. Feminists address this shortcoming by developing both a theory and a political movement aimed at unveiling the power relations inherent in old and new forms of work. By providing an analysis of gender, work, and the economy, Heidi Gottfried brings to light the many faces of power from the bedroom to the boardroom. A discussion of globalization is threaded throughout the book to uncover the impact of increasing global interconnections, and vivid case studies are included, from industrialized countries such as the US and the global cities of New York, London, and Tokyo, as well as from developing countries and the emerging global cities of Beijing, Shanghai, and Dubai. This comprehensive analysis of gender and work in a global economy, incorporating sociology, geography, and political economy perspectives, will be a valued companion to students in gender studies and across the social sciences more generally.

Dieser Band steht für ein Programm, das die Relevanz postkolonialer Theorien für die Soziologie aufzeigt. Er bringt die aktuellen Diskussionen zum Thema aus Kultur-, Migrations- und Geschlechtersoziologie mit dem Ziel zusammen, nicht nur die Grundbegriffe und zentralen Theorien im disziplinären Kontext, sondern auch ihre gesellschaftspolitischen Implikationen vor dem Hintergrund einer postkolonialen Perspektive zu überdenken. Die vorwiegend aus dem Fach stammenden Beiträge gehen dabei sowohl theorie-systematisch wie empirisch vor, um die postkoloniale Perspektive in der Soziologie nachhaltig zu verankern.

Heidi Gottfried reveals the institutional sources of labour insecurities behind Japan's postwar employment system, arguing that this economic juggernaut's decline cannot be understood without reference to the reproductive bargain, and that gendering institutional analysis is one key to deciphering the enigma of Japanese capitalism.

Im Weltmaßstab gesehen erscheinen die afrikanischen und lateinamerikanischen Sozialwissenschaften als peripher. Doch entstehen hier aus der Auseinandersetzung mit lokal relevanten gesellschaftlichen Fragestellungen originelle, eigenständige Bereiche der soziologischen Forschung und Lehre, die als konterhegemoniale Strömungen konzeptualisiert werden. An der Schnittstelle von Wissenschaftssoziologie und Globalisierungsforschung verbindet dieser Band theoretische und empirische Perspektiven auf Entwicklungen und Positionierungen der »Soziologien des Südens« und ist ein Gewinn für alle, die sich kritisch mit dem Eurozentrismus der Sozialwissenschaften befassen.

This volume considers how women are shaping the global economic landscape through their labor, activism, and multiple discourses about work. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of international scholars, the book offers a gendered examination of work in the global economy and analyses the effects of the 2008 downturn on women’s labor force participation and workplace activism. The book addresses three key themes: exploitation versus opportunity; women’s agency within the context of changing economic options; and women’s negotiations and renegotiations of unpaid social reproductive labor. This uniquely interdisciplinary and comparative analysis will be crucial reading for anyone with an interest in gender and the post-crisis world.

The global race for skilled immigrants seeks to attract the best global workers. In the pursuit of these individuals, governments may incidentally discriminate on gender grounds. Existing gendered differences in the global labour market related to life course trajectories, pay gaps and gendered divisions in occupational specialisation are also present in skilled immigration selection policies. Presenting the first book-length account of the global race for talent from a gender perspective, Gender, migration and the global race for talent will be read by graduate students, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners in the fields of immigration studies, political science, public policy, sociology and gender studies, and Australian and Canadian studies.

The Oxford Handbook Of Employment Relations

There have been numerous accounts exploring the relationship between institutions and firm practices. However, much of this literature tends to be located into distinct theoretical-traditional 'silos', such as national business systems, social systems of production, regulation theory, or varieties of capitalism, with limited dialogue between different approaches to enhance understanding of institutional effects. Again, evaluations of the relationship between institutions and employment relations have tended to be of the broad-brushstroke nature, often founded on macro-data, and with only limited attention being accorded to internal diversity and details of actual practice. The Handbook aims to fill this gap by bringing together an assembly of comprehensive and high quality chapters to enable understanding of changes in employment relations since the early 1970s. Theoretically-based chapters attempt to link varieties of capitalism, business systems, and different modes of regulation to the specific practice of employment relations, and offer a truly comparative treatment of the subject, providing frameworks and empirical evidence for understanding trends in employment relations in different parts of the world. Most notably, the Handbook seeks to incorporate at a theoretical level regulationist accounts and recent work that link bounded internal systemic diversity with change, and, at an applied level, a greater emphasis on recent applied evidence, specifically dealing with the employment contract, its implementation, and related questions of work organization. It will be useful to academics and students of industrial relations, political economy, and management.
