    UNDOING WORK, RETHINKING COMMUNITY: A CRITIQUE OF THE SOCIAL FUNCTION OF WORK

    Book ID/图书代码: 03360020C00096

    English Summary/英文概要: This revolutionary book presents a new conception of community and the struggle against capitalism. In Undoing Work, Rethinking Community, James A. Chamberlain argues that paid work and the civic duty to perform it substantially undermines freedom and justice. Chamberlain believes that to seize back our time and transform our society, we must abandon the deep-seated view that community is constructed by work, whether paid or not.

    Chamberlain focuses on the regimes of flexibility and the unconditional basic income, arguing that while both offer prospects for greater freedom and justice, they also incur the risk of shoring up the work society rather than challenging it. To transform the work society, he shows that we must also reconfigure the place of paid work in our lives and rethink the meaning of community at a deeper level. Throughout, he speaks to a broad readership, and his focus on freedom and social justice will interest scholars and activists alike. Chamberlain offers a range of strategies that will allow us to uncouple our deepest human values from the notion that worth is generated only through labor.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要:

    Awards/获奖情况:"Undoing Work, Rethinking Community moves with ease and elegance from political speech to scholarly debates to popular journalism to career-counseling discourses, drawing on the rich array of materials that our current social order offers. James A. Chamberlain advances a single and refreshingly simple thesis: the measure of good citizenship in our ‘work society’ is ‘gainful employment,’ and this significantly undermines both liberty and equality."
