About This Item

New York & London: W. W. Norton & Company, 1998. WYSIWYG pricing--no added shipping charge for standard shipping within USA. Perfect bound, quarter black cloth-textured paper with brown paper-covered boards, gilt titles on spine, blind "R. S." on front board, 176 pp, notes, index. Slight wear to very fragile spine ends, else as new. Top corner of rear DJ flap creased, else as new in Brodart archival cover. From the DJ: Drawing on interviews with dismissed IBM executives in Westchester, New York, bakers in a high-tech Boston bakery, a barmaid turned advertising executive, and many others, Sennett explores the disorienting effects of the new capitalism. He reveals the vivid and illuminating contrast between two worlds of work: the vanished world of rigid, hierarchical organizations, where what mattered was a sense of personal character, and the brave new world of corporate re-engineering, risk, flexibility, networking, and short-term teamwork, where what matters is being able to re-invent yourself on a dime." Shipping weight 2 lbs. (International 1 lb., 8 oz.). 3rd ptg. . Fine/Fine. 21½ X 14½ cm.
