Literature and Work is part of Longman's the Essential Literature Series. This anthology introduces students to work by having them read, discuss, and write about work-related topics, which are often connected to issues of gender, race, ethnicity, and class. The book features contemporary as well as classic literature with a global perspective. The literature is arranged under eight primary themes: "Work: Definitions and Ideals," "Entering the Work Force," "Hard Work and Hard Times: The Working Poor," "The Immigrant Experience," "Class Struggle and the Dynamics of Power," "Race, Gender, and the Dynamics of Power," "Work and Ethics," and "Work: Fulfillment and Disillusionment."
