This book evaluates three decades of change in employment and social regulation, questioning the paradigm of Post-Fordism as a stable development within contemporary capitalism. Bringing together leading commentators, it critiques the assumption that there is a new stable, decentralized regime of employment that is post-bureaucratic and flexible.
