This book presents the diverse perspectives of eleven researchers who analyze how work and employment are developing in a rapidly changing Japan. Using macro- and micro-level data, and employing a range of theoretical approaches, the authors examine subjects such as lifetime employment, 'freeters', and senior volunteers. The authors describe how employment in Japan is evolving as well as how the meanings that individual Japanese attach to their work and employment are changing. The book sets its subject matter within contemporary developments in the Japanese socio-economy and demonstrates the centrality of work to an understanding of 21st century Japan. It is useful to anyone with an interest in work and employment in Japan, from scholars and specialists in HRM and management, to economists, sociologists, and anthropologists.
