The rise of temporary work has been staggering in developed countries across the globe. The lower costs of employing temporary workers are clear to see, but what is the impact of this phenomenon on economies, and what is its impact on workers themselves? These questions, amongst many others, are examined thoroughly for the first time in this book. The contributors to this volume consider the nature of temporary work, the status of the temporary worker and the multinational development of the temporary work sector from differing perspectives. With an international group of expert contributors, and under the crack editorship of John Burgess and Julia Connell, this book has achieved an impressive feat--it is readable, breaks new ground and has implications for professionals across the world as well as being clear interest to economists and business students.
