New Book Publication on Work from a Global Historical Perspective

A new book has been published by scholar Andrea Komlosy, Professor at the Economic and Social History Institute at the University of Vienna. The book is a study on the nature of work from the 13th to the 21st century from a global perspective.

Based within economic and social history, the study looks at the changing nature of working conditions both from their diversity and their contradictions. This reveals simultaneity across time towards the twenty-first century and challenges the Euro-centric narrative of work, placing the concept in a more nuanced global perspective as a result.

To look at the contents of the book, please see here.
