Product Details


“This massive book is an astonishing combination—an ideological and cultural analysis, a socio-historical narrative, an essay in political economy, and a bold piece of engaged advocacy … a dizzying theoretical tour.”
New Left Review

“A major contribution to the literature in the field and to scholars beyond French borders.”
Times Higher Education

“A wide-ranging, nuanced sociological inquiry into the nature of contemporary work.”

“[A] vast and ambitious work, which is inscribed in a great tradition of theoretical and critical sociology.”
Le Monde

“This magnificent book [is] the sociology of a whole generation which capitalism caught on the wrong foot. In more than 800 pages which one devours like a great novel, the book furnishes new weapons for the renewal of the Left.”

“This book will no doubt come to be regarded as a contemporary classic of political economy and political sociology.”
Political Studies Review

“Ambitious and fascinating.”
Le Nouvel Observateur

“A wonderful book.”
—William Davies, author of The Happiness Industry
