The book breaks new ground as an integrated account of the forces shaping employment relations. It provides expert analysis of the national regulation of labour for more than half the world’s population. The introduction sets out a theoretical framework within which the salient institutional characteristics of the different countries discussed in the following chapters can be appreciated and compared.
In this most recent edition, the editors and contributors build, refine, and expand their analysis of employment relations and apply it to a much larger set of workers and employers than they did in previous editions of the book. The book’s approach is particularly important at a time when trends toward economic globalization are increasingly countered by governments trying to preserve the autonomy of their own employment systems.

It is essential reading for those interested in comparative industrial relations as well as political economy.
