Comparisons between the UK, US, Germany and Japan reveal the ways in which gender transforms conventional understandings of the knowledge-based economy. Drawing on innovative concepts of varieties of gender regime as well as varieties of capitalism, this collection rethinks the processes of de-gendering and re-gendering of working practices in the context of both de-regulation and re-regulation of employment. Rich case studies examine new temporalities, new contractualities and new spatialities of employment forms (part-time, temporary and self-employment), new industries (new media), and new organizations (call centres) in comparative perspective. These comparisons revise previous understandings and result in a more accurate mapping of societies, but also provide a better framework for explaining the similarities and differences in the gendering of new employment forms and knowledge-based work within and between countries."@en ;
