The paper is made of two sections. In the first one the international debate about sociology of work in the first decade is discussed. While in the first years the major argument was how either to soften or to get rid of Taylorism, in the later years the main debate concerns the divide between Fordism and post-Fordism, until the appearance of the Japanese model (in Western term, lean production). In the second section, after exposing the major features of Sociologia del lavoro, the thirty-six issues of it published in the decade are examined. Since all the issues, but two, show on their cover which problems are discussed, it has been possible to put them into six different classes: 1. The state of art: debates, problems, knowledge; 2. Organization and quality of work; 3. Professionalism and intermediate roles; 4. Non industrial sectors; 5. Cooperation, youth conditions, marginality; 6. Subject’s strategies, cultural approaches, temporal dimension.

Keywords: Taylorism, post-taylorism, fordism, post-fordism; japanese model; quality of work
