The implications of globalization for labor are more often asserted than analyzed. This collection, and its companion volume "The Global Economy, National States and the Regulation of Labour" edited by by Paul Edwards and Tony Elger, seek to remedy this deficiency by presenting contemporary research on the relationship between the globalization of production and the regulation of labor. It examines the relations between specific pattens of labor control (production regimes) and approaches to national labor (regulatory regimes). The contributors assess the nature and form of labor resistance and accommodation across a range of manufacturing industries in different national contexts.
