Abstract

This is a book about organisational control in the information age. Essentially this book explores whether contemporary workers are isolated, alienated and repressed human ruins – as popular discourse and beliefs would have it – or whether people working in the pioneering conditions of the information age actually quite like their working realities and actively participate in their reconstruction and reproduction. The book culminates theoretically with an understanding of organisational control in terms of the new modern forms of power and an explanation of the relationships among subjectivity, agency, power and organisational control.
