Wharton, Washington State University, US ‘The prose is pitched perfectly for advanced undergraduates and was highly engaging for me as well. It feels fresh and up to date. Data-rich sections include the precarity of work, the digital economy, gender at work in international context, and the implications of COVID-19. At the same time, the chapters are firmly rooted in the historical development of capitalism and informed by sociological theory.’ – Mary Blair-Loy, University of California San Diego, US Key Features: • Analysis of algorithms and the gig economy in the broader context of workplace change • Insight into the interconnections between gender, work, and family, as well as the sources of stability and change in these relations over time • Understanding changes in the spatial, physical, and temporal aspects of work and their impacts on workers and families • Foregrounds inequality, using the intersectional lenses of race, class, gender, and citizenship to explore this issue June 2022 192 pp Hardback 978 1 83910 160 1 £85.00 / $120.00 June 2022 Paperback 978 1 83910 162 5 £18.95 / $29.45 Elgar Advanced Introductions series Social Contracts and Informal Workers in the Global South Edited by Laura Alfers, Rhodes University, South Africa and WIEGO, UK, Marty Chen, Harvard University, US and WIEGO, UK and Sophie Plagerson, University of Johannesburg, South Africa and independent consultant, the Netherlands ‘An original and insightful contribution to rethinking the social contract.

Its sustained attention to the entanglement of spatiality and communicative media, as well as to the differentiated possibilities for everyday human agency that then emerge, is particularly insightful and welcome.’ – Gillian Rose, University of Oxford, UK May 2022 208 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 626 4 £80.00 / $115.00 Rethinking Human Geography series Handbook of Culture and Glocalization Edited by Victor N.

Yet, I found this book to be her most interesting piece of writing. It is experimental in form and successfully mixes stories of real-world change processes, with auto-biographical reflection and conceptual analysis in a way which really made me think. The book is an erudite and passionate articulation of pathways to action at a time when the world urgently needs to nurture the “proliferating micro worlds” that she describes.’ – Danny Burns, The University of Sussex, UK June 2022 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 304 4 £90.00 / $130.00 How to Research Guides Handbook of Digital Higher Education Edited by Rhona Sharpe, University of Oxford, UK, Sue Bennett, University of Wollongong, Australia and Tünde VargaAtkins, University of Liverpool, UK ‘With contributions from current leaders in digital higher education, the Handbook combines a state-of-the-art review of the scholarly landscape with advice that can be adapted and applied by educators in different contexts.

He follows this up with compelling ideas about the reconstitution of social relations in a globalising world. The new forms of organised relationships envisaged – often just outside the range of conventional scholarship – are revelatory. In sum, this book is a bold assertion of the importance of social relationships and the social sphere in an emerging world more often exclusively defined in terms of concentrations of political and economic power.’ – Stephen Ackroyd, University of Lancaster, UK 2021 160 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 944 9 £70.00 / $99.00 May 2022 Paperback 978 1 80392 749 7 £21.95 / $35.00 eBook • Elgaronline New Horizons in Organization Studies series NEW IN PAPERBACK Global Youth Unemployment History, Governance and Policy Ross Fergusson and Nicola Yeates, The Open University, UK ‘Rarely has a study of global youth unemployment so adeptly combined an empirically-grounded scrutiny of its levels and trends, with a conceptually nuanced analysis of its political economy drivers at multiple scales. Fergusson and Yeates make a compelling case for seeing endemic youth unemployment as an issue of grave social injustice - one that supply-side palliative approaches have patently failed to address, and which is in urgent need of integrated employment, social protection and macroeconomic policies backed by a more cohesive system of social and economic governance at the global level.’ – Shahra Razavi, Director of the Social Protection Department, International Labour Organization, Switzerland 2021 296 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 041 5 £95.00 / $145.00 2022 Paperback 978 1 80392 603 2 £30.95 / $45.00 eBook • Elgaronline SOCIOLOGY & SOCIAL POLICY NEW TITLES, APRIL – JUNE 2022
