Summary More and more adults participate as employees in games at work and in public and voluntary organisations. Why has play exploded in recent years both in private, public and voluntary organisations? Power at Play covers the intricate linkages between pedagogy, play and power. It shows how power today suspends itself through play and analyses organised play as a symptom of more radical changes of the exercise of power in work and society. This book is a must for everybody designing social games for organisations and those interested in evolutionary changes in the contemporary work-place
