Review:

"McIvor offers a broad perspective of the effects of the changes in the British economy on the daily lives of working people since WWII. Exhbiting an exemplary grasp of the secondary literature, McIvor delves deeply into the meaning of work and its associated values and ideals; its differential experience among men, women, immigrant groups, and the disabled; the effects of work on both the body and the mind; and, finally, the experience of unemployment and retirement." - Choice
 
"This book will be a valuable addition for students and scholars of twentieth-century working lives and will undoubtedly be cited as a key text. It is a sensitive, balanced and richly informed survey." – Sheila Blackburn, University of Liverpool, UK

"A comprehensive, thoroughly researched text, that makes excellent use of oral history transcripts." – Alan Booth, University of Exeter, UK 

Book Description:

An accessible survey of the changing nature of employment and meaning of work in Britain since 1945, featuring a range of workers' personal narratives
