Description: Published Under the Garamond ImprintThis innovative book is concerned with the power relations, complexities, and contradictions in the paid workplace. Workplace learning is not value-free or politically neutral, and cannot be studied independently of the political economy of work.Workplace Learningis part of a growing body of work that offers an alternative to mainstream approaches to workplace learning, recognizing that power relations, politics and conflicts of interest all shape learning. The authors emphasize the lived experiences of working people, avoiding prescriptive accounts and uncritical Human Resource Development views.Comments:"Here is a map through contested and largely uncharted terrain..." - from the foreword by D'Arcy Martin
