Breaking new ground and drawing on contributions from the leading academics in the field, this notable volume focuses specifically on industrial relations. Informative and revealing, the text provides an overview of the industrial relations systems of nine regions (North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, Africa, and India) and is divided into two distinct sections covering:

  • regional variations in global industrial relations systems
  • contemporary themes in global industrial relations.

Combining both systems and thematic issues, this important new text is invaluable reading for postgraduates and professionals in the fields of human resources management, industrial relations and business and management as well as anyone studying or interested in the issues surrounding global industrial relations.

'This is a book that I would strongly recommend for adoption on any course in international or comparative industrial relations. The particular features which appeal to me are twofold. First, its organizing principles; organizing the chapters by both regional blocks and important, contemporary topics sets it apart from many other edited volumes which have frequently used only one of these principles. And secondly, all the chapters draw extensively on comprehensive, up-to-date research-based evidence. The resulting picture which emerges involves a judicious mixture of international commonalities, regional commonalities, and county specific factors, which make for an engaging read.' - Phillip Beaumont, University of Glasgow, UK
