Working and Not Working Toward a Fluid Society Publication date : September 1, 1998

The definition of work, the nature of work, and the structure of the business world are changing. A few years ago, working life followed a distinct period of education, was punctuated by short periods of leisure, and ended finally with retirement. Now, traditional borders between work and non-work are being erased, and education, work, leisure, and retirement are mixed together. Both politicians and the public have reacted fatalistically. But how can we confront these changes, and what lessons can we learn from those countries that are "succeeding"? These questions are taken up and intelligently discussed in this dynamic and iconoclastic book.
