Read the review by James N. Baron of the Yale School of Management, published in Administrative Science Quarterly:

In Good Jobs, Bad Jobs, Arne Kalleberg documents the increasingly polarized and precarious employment situations of workers in the United States over the last four decades. These trends should be at least somewhat asqfamiliar to anyone who follows the news or has ever heard of ‘‘Occupy Wall Street.’’ But Good Jobs, Bad Jobs provides a detailed, thorough, nuanced, and richly illuminating portrait of how access to jobs and valued job rewards has changed since the 1970s and who has gained and lost most from these changes.
