However, this is not simply a critique of the myriad ways in which academics’ “performance” is now constantly audited and monitored in a way that limits their freedom to perform their proper function, but also a much-needed call to arms.’ – Julian Petley, Brunel University London, UK Nov 2022 c 416 pp Hardback 978 1 78897 590 2 c £155.00 / c $225.00 eBook • Elgaronline A Research Agenda for the Gig Economy and Society Edited by Valerio De Stefano, York University, Canada, Ilda Durri, Charalampos Stylogiannis and Mathias Wouters, KU Leuven, Belgium ‘This important volume lays bare the significance of platform work for the wider world of work and for society at large. Through a multidisciplinary perspective it addresses a myriad of issues concerning platform work that have not received their due attention such as occupational safety and health, discrimination, and gaps in cross-border governance. The editors and contributors have done a fantastic job in making clear both the exceptional – and the unexceptional – aspects of platform work and thus provide a useful guide to scholars, social partners and policymakers of how to shape the gig economy so that it can be of benefit to all.’ – Janine Berg, International Labour Organization, Geneva, Switzerland Nov 2022 c 264 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 350 5 c £95.00 / c $140.00 Elgar Research Agendas eBook • Elgaronline A Comparative History of Central Bank Behavior Consistency in Monetary Policy in the US and UK John H.
