Description

This major work offers a broad insight into the field of industrial relations, taking into account the economic, political and social influences and the relative power of capital and labour that shape relations between people at work. Aided by an international editorial advisory board, the collection takes a broad interdisciplinary approach, which includes the interactions between employers, workers, their collective organizations and the state. Key concepts and foundational readings on industrial relations are covered by the first volume, while the second comprises readings on the principal actors in industrial relations. The third volume focuses on industrial relations processes and conflict resolution, leaving the fourth and final volume to deal with outcomes of the industrial relations processes.
