This book gets behind much generality about globalisation to examine the production of relatively familiar commodities such as refrigerators and ovens in different countries. By considering a range of countries - China, Taiwan and South Korea, South Africa, Brazil and Turkey - it makes a substantive contribution to the understanding of the diffusion of management methods, the role of the state in employee relations, the nature of trade unionism and the impact of social structure on production relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book makes an innovative contribution to our understanding of the ways in which workers across the world experience both the dynamic and uneven character of contemporary globalisation. The authors develop a systematic comparison of work and employment relations in factories in the same sector across many countries, and set this in the context of both national political and market conditions and wider international processes of market rivalry and corporate concentration. As such they demonstrate the great value of a comparative approach to contemporary industrial change.' - Tony Elger, Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Warwick, UK

An illuminating comparison between employment strategies in Britain and three countries in south-east Asia.' - The Financial Times
