Blood, Sweat and Tears-The Evolution of work by Richard Donkin
Work - a process as familiar to almost everyone as their daily routines - has radically changed in nature over the centuries. Most of these changes have involved revolutionary steps, significantly influencing the way people live and behave. Two of these - the agrarian revolution (when people abandoned their hunter-gatherer lifestyles and grouped together as farming communities) and the industrial revolution (where people began to concentrate in farms and cities) - were watersheds in the evolution of work. A third revolution in the way we work and live, driven this time by new technology, appears to be happening as we enter the new millennium.
