Critical Acclaim
Critical Acclaim
‘This volume makes an excellent contribution to the study of human and societal core issues such as job insecurity, precarious employment and burnout. All of them are lasting phenomena and currently represent critical challenges for scientists, professionals and policy makers.’
– José M. Peiró, University of Valencia, Spain

‘Nele De Cuyper, Eva Selenko, Martin Euwema, and Wilmar Schaufeli have given us a remarkable book in which some of the leading scholars on job insecurity, precarious employment, and burnout look back at extant literature but also look ahead and reflect on what the future of employment will look like. The chapters in this timely and much needed book, while honoring the work and scholarship of Hans De Witte, one of the leading authors of our times in organizational psychology, will nudge you into asking bigger questions and equip you with ideas and tools to understand (and hopefully improve!) the lives of workers in the 21st century.’
– Andrea Bazzoli, Baruch College, City University of New York, US
