Work in the future

the automation revolution

Edited by

Robert Skidelsky, Nan Craig

This short, accessible book seeks to explore the future of work through the views and opinions of a range of expertise, encompassing economic, historical, technological, ethical and anthropological aspects of the debate. The transition to an automated society brings with it new challenges and a consideration for what has happened in the past; the editors of this book carefully steer the reader through future possibilities and policy outcomes, all the while recognising that whilst such a shift to a robotisedsociety will be a gradual process, it is one that requires significant thought and consideration.
