Why Work?: Arguments for the Leisure Society (Freedom) (Paperback)
Why Work? is a provocative collection of essays and illustrations dissecting “work,” its form under capitalism, and the possibilities for an alternative society. It poses the question: why do some of us still work until we drop in an age of automated production, while others starve for lack of work? This collection includes contributions from luminaries of the past like Bertrand Russell, contemporary theorists like Juliet Schor, and illustrated examinations of workplace potentials and pitfalls.
