This research hand-book is a highly readable and thought-provoking account of comparative employment relations in current published texts. The breadth and depth of this book are remarkable and it will serve as a very valuable introductory text to students and researchers inter-ested in comparative employment relations and global governance of employment relations. -- Wei Huang, Work, Employment and Society
'Besides a well-written introduction by the two editors, the book presents seventeen other chapters, some by well-known writers on the subject or related social sciences. . . This is a substantial resource book for scholars and students of comparative ER, especially for those who look towards the evolution of ER in the new economic world that is in formation, and in a comparative perspective. . . the book contains intellectually stimulating analyses of employee relations realities across the globe. . . Scholars belonging to different disciplinary perspectives, from which ER has been studied in the past, will also find in it a good reference material of comparative analyses. . . The publishers too deserve accolades for their professionalism and first rate copy-editing and production.' -- Debi S. Saini, Vision - the Journal of Business Perspectives
