Since the appearance of Braverman's "Labour and Monopoly Capital", the impact of labour process analysis has been experienced in the fields of industrial sociology, organization theory, industrial relations, labour economics, politics and business studies. The annual UMIST-Aston Labour Process Conferences have provided a regular forum for advancing empirical and theoretical analysis in these fields. By combining a selection of papers delivered at these conferences with specially commissioned contributions, the series examines various aspects of the employment relationship across the range of productive and service industries. In this review of the contribution of labour process theory to the study of work organization, various contributors explore the theoretical foundations of labour process analysis and suggest new directions for its development. The contriubtors include Gibson Burrell, Paul Edwards, Andrew Friedman, David Knights, Craig Littler, Dominic Strianti, Paul Thompson, Mark Wardell, Jackie West and High Willmott.
