"Michelle Addison's Social Games and Identity in the Higher Education Workplace: Playing with Gender, Class and Emotion ... is a well-written book by an early career researcher that explores game-playing in British universities and the effects of class and gender stratifications on our workplace identities. With a sophisticated theoretical framework, this book is essential reading for all of us who are struggling to survive and thrive in the neoliberal academy."
