" The many meanings of work -- from prehistory to the present, from around the world -- are the focus of this reader: "Work can be a place, as in 'Where do you work?' Work can be a job, as in 'What is your work?' People can get worked up and mines can get worked out. Many people are overworked but things usually work out. And sometimes you can get a really good hamburger with all the works. See other books in the series New Books for New Readers."
