Product description


This pioneering book sets the standard for the field. It offers a theoretically informed analysis, which links key trends in employment relations across twelve countries to global phenomena. It is essential reading for those interested in comparative industrial relations as well as political economy.--Jimmy Donaghey

This latest edition is another major contribution by a group of eminent scholars in the field. It serves to promote the study of comparative employment relations in the current context of globalization which is also of topical interest to the International Labour Organization (ILO).--Guy Ryder

The book breaks new ground as an integrated account of the forces shaping employment relations. It provides expert analysis of the national regulation of labour for more than half the world's population. The introduction sets out a theoretical framework within which the salient institutional characteristics of the different countries discussed in the following chapters can be appreciated and compared.--William Brown

This new edition of a highly praised book is commended for its timely analysis of the impact of globalisation on national industrial relations.--Janice Bellace

The most enduring and valuable book in the field of international and comparative employment relations in the last 30 years, the 6th edition covers advanced and emerging economies with insightful theoretical implications from a comparative perspective.--Dong-One Kim

Each of the contributors to the work are world class scholars. The editors are similarly elite at their game. In addition, all parties have had a chance to refine their act to the point (now) where they have created something truly indispensable for the serious student of comparative employment relations--or those merely interested in same. Read it ! You will learn a lot about its subject matter and how to write. You may even enjoy the experience of viewing real and important scholarship.

--Anthony Gould

This book will be welcomed by students and scholars seeking to understand the implications of the interconnectedness of national economies for national-level employment relations, institutions and actors. Twelve countries are explored in chapters written by national experts who together with contributions from the esteemed editors provide detailed information and conceptual tools.--Linda Dickens "University of Warwick, UK "

In this most recent edition, the editors and contributors build, refine, and expand their analysis of employment relations and apply it to a much larger set of workers and employers than they did in previous editions of the book. The book's approach is particularly important at a time when trends toward economic globalization are increasingly countered by governments trying to preserve the autonomy of their own employment systems.--Jeffrey Wheeler

A classic reference book on international and comparative employment relations, it provides an authoritative, up-to-date and systematic account
it offers labour law scholars, practitioners, and policymakers with a smorgasbord of background knowledge, concepts, and tools to compare and evaluate how work is organised and governed in different parts of the world, which will no doubt create meaningful insights into our own--Mimi Zou"Industrial Law Journal, Vol. 47, No. 4" (12/01/2018)

The most comprehensive and authoritative comparative analysis of employment relations....especially welcomed because it provides excellent comparisons of how employment systems in different countries responded to the effects of the post-2007 "Great Recession". By doing so this stellar group of authors and editors provide new insights on the adaptability of labor market institutions across the globe.--Thomas Kochan
