Synopsis: HISTORY OF WORK, THE

This sweeping survey of the history of work, from hunter-gatherers to dotcom telecommuters, deftly compresses thousands of years of human evolution into an incisive volume. It is a book about work, about the organization and management of work, but it is also a book about people. Originally published as Blood, Sweat and Tears, this is a new, updated edition of that classic work. Here's what reviewers said about the original edition: "This book is huge. In every good sense of the word. It certainly belongs on the bookshelf of every leader and every scholar in the area of management and organizational life."---Warren Bennis, author of the bestselling On Becoming a Leader "There are a lot of books about work and employment. Richard Donkin has written a book that stands apart from the rest. [This] is engaging and intelligent reading, rooted in both historical and personal understanding and insight."---Jeffrey Pfeffer, Professor, Stanford Business School, USA, and author of The Human Equation: Building Profit by Putting People First "An excellent primer on the human dynamics and great possibilities of the new economy."---Don Tapscott "A rich and varied treasure trove. Donkin is a great storyteller."---Management Today "An absorbing, thoughtful and stimulating read for anyone involved with directing or managing business enterprises."---The Director "This work poses thoughtful questions about our definition of work and is recommended for academic and business libraries."---New York Times "This historical analysis of the Protestant work ethic makes for provocative reading in an age of unprecedented affluence."---Harvard Business Review "An intelligent and thoroughly readable analysis of the nature of work."---Business Books "Donkin introduces excellent and intellectual analysis about the theories, practices and individuals that have helped change the working world."---United Press International "Richard Donkin is a humane, thoughtful writer who has spent years considering the changing shape of work."---Financial Times
