It brings together the principal theories, explanations and debates surrounding the flexibility issue to provide a useful overview. This treatment offers an analysis of flexibility as a concept, the different levels at which it is applied and the different ways in which it is used. Patterns of flexibility are identified and examined and the text considers what flexibility means to individual workers - their relationship with employers, involvement in and control over their working lives and the relationship between these and their life outside work. Importantly the book provides a consideration of global trends and establishes patterns of flexibility for different countries and regions.
