"In this major work sociologists Luc Boltanski and Eve Chiapello go to the heart of the changes in contemporary business culture." "Via an unprecedented analysis of the latest management texts that have formed the thinking of employers in their reorganization of business, the authors trace the contours of a new spirit of capitalism. They argue that from the middle of the 1970s onwards, capitalism abandoned the hierarchical Fordist work structure and developed a new network-based form of organization that was founded on employee initiative and autonomy in the workplace - a 'freedom' that came at the cost of material and psychological security."--BOOK JACKET.
