This book deals with critical issues resulting from the impact of corporate restructuring on workers. U.S. industry has undergone a shakeout resulting from increasing competitive pressures and the globalization of production. As a result, some two million workers have been laid-off from their employers. Individual chapters have been drafted by an interdisciplinary group of academics who explore seven key areas: demographic changes of younger and older workers, workforce displacement from lay-offs, human resources planning for downsizing and mergers, technological change, changes in the roles of unions, changes in managerial and professional work, and `contingent' and flexible employment. The drafts of the chapters have been extensively edited and, in some cases, rewritten so that the book will read more like a series of chapters than a group of papers. The work was commissioned by the National Planning Association who will be a party to the contract.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Labor markets and employment patterns in the 1990s--reflecting globalization of markets, new technologies, changing demographics, and personnel objectives--require a redesign of many private and public policies. Turbulence in the American Workplace is the book to read for those who want to begin
that reassessment and adaptation."--John T. Dunlop, Harvard University
.,."scholarly discussions of issues that are often treated otherwise, especially in the business press, where anecdotes rule supreme. The accounts are balanced and do a very good job of marshalling available data and reviewing prior literature."--Administrative Science Quarterly
"By drawing attention to the need to repair, build, and, more broadly, to develop the infrastructure of human resource capabilities in the United States, it makes a most significant contribution."--Industrial And Labor Relations Review
