Summary The office: for many of us, it's where we spend more time and expend greater effort than anywhere else. Yet how many of us have stopped to think about why? In The Office: A Hardworking History, Gideon Haigh traces its origins from merchants and monks to the gleaming glass towers of New York. A lively social and cultural history blending its birth, growth and emergence as a means of organising a company, an institution or a bureaucracy to the place in which most of us spend more time than any other.
