Their book „Arbeits- und Industriesoziologie. Soziologie im 21. Jahrhundert“ (Sociology of Work and Industrial Sociology. Sociology in the 21st Century) was awarded best textbook in sociology on 26 September 2018 at the 39th Congress of the German Society of Sociology (DGS) in Göttingen.

The German Society for Sociology awards the René König Textbook Prize only every two years. The prize is awarded to books which, with due care and a great deal of expert knowledge, provide a rich perspective on sociological content as well as sociological theories and related methods and reflect them critically and precisely. The laudatory speech was given by Prof. Dr. Olaf Struck of the University of Bamberg, who emphasized in his speech that the two authors had succeeded in an innovative way in starting each main chapter of the textbook with a current concrete problem, in contrast to the usual practice, and in chronologically narrating these problems backwards in chronological order by using their concrete sociological explanatory paths. The prizewinners not only look at current technical and digital changes in industrial work, but also at structural innovations in service and knowledge work as well as changes in the world we live in as a result of work. They are not only able to draw a bow back from current topics to the classics, but they also show the topicality of the classics for today’s phenomena and approaches. „In this way, the two prizewinners have succeeded excellently in demonstrating the relevance of the subject and its fundamental theories and insights not only for students, but also for advanced learners. So we’d love to hear more about it,“ said the laudator.
