This collection of essays examines the role of managers as employees in nine industrialized countries--Britain, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, West Germany, Sweden, France, Italy, and Japan. Focusing on middle managers, including professionals, the contributors document the differences and similarities that exist in the employment relationships of managers in these countries, trace the forces that shape these relationships, and discuss the ways that these relationships have been affected by developments in the business environment over the last two decades. The distinguished contributors include Greg Bamber, Ed Snape, Russell D. Lansbury, Annabelle Quince, David F. Smith, Eberhard Witte, Karl-Olof FaxA(c)n, HA kan Lundgren, Jacques Rojot, Claudio Pellegreni, and Vladimir Pucik.

"Represents an impressive effort to bring together a broad array of international scholars to address significant questions about management in different cultures. Given the continuing globalization of the marketplace and internationalization of business, analyses of this sort are sorely needed. Roomkin and his associates are to be commended for their efforts."--Personnel Psychology "Roomkin and his colleagues are to be warmly congratulated for their initiative."--Comparative Labor Law Journal "This book does an excellent job of examining managers as jobholders and paycheck-earners rather than as leaders and order-givers. This nine country survey informatively shows that managers have pay status, and job security concerns similar to rank-and-file employees. This book also usefully explores the rarely-discussed subject of managerial unionism. For all the talk of the global economy, this volume insightfully pinpoints the country-specific nature of many managerial practices."--Peter Feuille, University of Illinois "Managers as Employees, with its unique perspective, stands alone as a significant contribution to our knowledge of contemporary international comparative employment relations among a neglected segment of the labor force. Students, academics, and practitioners alike will find this book engaging and informative."--Stuart M.
