9780745334868: The Mythology of Work: How Capitalism Persists Despite Itself
Review:

Fleming's analyses of work critically confront today’s capitalism, now well into its shift from old centers (western Europe, north America and Japan) to new, lower-wage centers (Asia, Latin America, Africa, etc.). The resulting precarity, scarcity, and mindlessness of work imposed on the old centers is being covered with an ideological fetishization of work that this book well deconstructs. (Richard Wolff, Professor of Economics Emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst)

Professor Fleming has established himself as the foremost critic of our generation on the pervasive and pernicious ideologies of business and management.  In this, his latest contribution, he dismantles the work ethic and the compulsion of work that plagues all workers, waged and unwaged.  This is a clarion call to action against the forces of work that would try to regulate and profit from our collective self-organisation. (Stefano Harney, Professor of Strategic Management Education, Singapore Management University)

From the Publisher:

There was once a time when ‘work’ was inextricably linked to survival and self-preservation; where the farmer ploughed the land so their family could eat. But the sun has long since set on this idyllic tableau, and what was once an integral part of life has slowly morphed into a painful and meaningless ritual, colonising almost every part of our lives - endless and inescapable.

In The Mythology of Work, Peter Fleming examines how neoliberal society uses the ritual of work (and the threat of its denial) to maintain the late capitalist class order. As our society is transformed into a factory that never sleeps, work becomes a universal reference point for everything else, devoid of any moral or political worth.

Blending critical theory with recent accounts of job related suicides, office-induced paranoia, fear of relaxation, managerial sadism and cynical corporate social responsibility campaigns, Fleming paints a bleak picture of neoliberal capitalism in which the economic and emotional dysfunctions of a society of wage slaves greatly outweigh its professed benefits.
