Taviss, Irene, Ed.; Gerber, William, Ed.
In an effort to provide an appreciation of the current literature dealing with the impact of technological change on the occupational distribution of the labor force and work patterns and skills, this research reviews and abstracts a small number of selected books and articles. An introduction discusses the changes already apparent in the occupational structure as a result of technological advancement. Three subtopics are covered: occupational distribution of the labor force, work patterns and skills, and social implications and public policy. A summary discussion of the current situation in each of these fields precedes the abstracts. The literature chosen for abstracting was published since 1966. An author index is appended. (JY)
