"Employment Relations" is widely taught in business schools around the world. Increasingly however more emphasis is being placed on the comparative and international dimensions of the relations between employers and workers. It is becoming ever more important to comprehend today's work and employment issues alongside a knowledge of the dynamics between global financial and product markets, global production chains, national and international employment actors and institutions and the ways in which these relationships play out in different national contexts.

This textbook is the first to present a cross-section of country studies, including all four BRIC countries, Brazil, Russia, India and China alongside integrative thematic chapters covering all the important topics needed to excel in this field. The textbook also benefits from the editors' and contributors' experience as leading scholars in Employment Relations.

The book is an ideal resource for students on advanced undergraduate and postgraduate comparative programmes across areas such as Employment Relations, Human Resource Management, Political Economy, Labour Politics, Industrial and Economic Sociology, Regulation and Social Policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Despite a liberalizing global economy, nations retain distinctive labor-market institutions such as human resource practices, labor unions, and regulatory regimes. This volume contains the very best comparative research on these national systems. It is incisive, timely, and well organized. It can serve as a research handbook for scholars as well as a text for students in the professional and social sciences. It is outstanding.'

Sanford M. Jacoby, Distinguished Professor of Management and Public Affairs UCLA, USA

'Comparative Employment Relations in the Global Economy is a superb collection that is truly global in scope, giving due regard to employment relations in emerging economies alongside those of the Global North. It provides the best available treatment of comparative employment relations and is an essential text for anyone teaching or studying in this area.'

Edmund Heery, Professor of Employment Relations, Cardiff Business School

'This book provides a new and refreshing approach to the study of comparative employment relations -- one that locates developments in both advanced and transitional countries within the broader political economy of global capitalism, but without losing sight of the continuing importance of national level differences and the institutional traditions that underpin them.'

Professor John Godard, Asper School of Business, University of Manitoba, Canada
