It is certainly plausible to suggest that we are living at a time when the pattern of work with which we have been familiar for nearly two centuries may be changing more rapidly than ever before, and when the categories in terms of which we have been accustomed to think about work are proving less and less appropriate. …The tasks of describing, understanding, explaining and criticising the structure and experience of work and unemployment are as important as they have ever been. We need to know the conditions of our present plight, to develop alternative futures and to explore the conditions necessary for their realisation. (Brown, 1984, p. 320)
