Globalization & Uncertainty in Modern Societies: Men’s Occupational Careers, Edward Elgar, 2006
Edited by: Hans-Peter Blossfeld, Melinda Mills and Fabrizio Bernardi
Globalization, argue the contributors to this book, has remarkably accelerated social and economic change in modern societies. One such change is manifested in the world of work and careers. This book explores whether the forces of globalization affect the erosion of standard career patterns of mid-career men in twelve OECD countries. Overwhelming evidence against the ‘individualization of inequality’ thesis is provided – it is argued that equality remains largely stratified by factors such as occupational class and educational level, and in some countries has even grown over time.
