The Concept of Skill: A Critical Review.
Vallas, Steven Peter
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v17 n4 p379-98 Nov 1990
The concept of skill is a matter of debate among occupational sociologists. Recent theorists tend to dismiss deskilling theory, but research findings are not yet conclusive. New lines of inquiry involving new technology and social construction of skills are emerging. Greater rigor in research is needed to contribute to policy debates. (105 references) (SK)
