Arne Kalleberg studies labor force issues at the interface of sociology, economics, and psychology. He has written extensively on the emergence of nonstandard work arrangements such as temporary, contract, and part-time work in the U.S., Asia and Europe. His book, Good Jobs, Bad Jobs: The Rise of Polarized and Precarious Employment Systems in the United States, 1970s to 2000s (Russell Sage Foundation, 2011), examines the growing precarity of work and the polarization of jobs with regard to earnings as well as non-economic rewards such as the control people have over their work activities and schedules, especially in balancing work and family. His book, Precarious Lives: Job Insecurity and Well-Being in Rich Democracies (Polity Press, 2018) shows how labor market and social welfare protection policies help to alleviate the negative consequences of precarious work by examining six countries: Denmark, Germany, Japan, Spain, the U.K. and U.S. His most recent book is Precarious Asia: Global Capitalism and Work in Japan, South Korea and Indonesia (with Kevin Hewison and Kwang-Yeong Shin)(Stanford University Press, 2022).
