Labor and industrial relations have attracted widespread interest in recent years. Yet in spite of the growing interest in the subject, labor relations continue to be grouped under such fields as economics, history, law, political science, psychology, and sociology making critical examination of the subject quite complex. The purpose of this book is to make this research easier by bringing together a vast array of logically arranged bibliographical information on labor and industrial relations from other disciplines; thus, filling a gap in labor relations bibliography. This work is an invaluable reference tool for those engaged in research on labor and industrial relations. The main section of this book is an annotated bibilography of English-language serials and journals on labor and industrial relations. The bibliography includes traditional academic journals, newsletters, newspapers, and bulletins. For easy access, this work is arranged in a numbered alphabetic sequence. An annotation is included with each bibliography entry to help the reader ascertain the flavor and scope of the articles each serial covers. There is also a full subject index, a publisher's index, geographical index, and title (previous and current) index.

Editorial Reviews

?Intended for librarians, specialists, and academics, this guide provides an overview of the serial literature of labor and industrial relations. It offers bibliographical information on nearly 350 titles from a variety of disciplines, drawing heavily upon the list of titles displayed by the Catherwood Library at Cornell University as the selection device. The titles include everything from the monthly magazine of the Carpenters Union to Business Week to World Marxist Review in an effort to at least sample the various types of serials in this multidisciplinary field. The annotations provide basic information (price, publisher, address, where indexed/abstracted, etc.) as well as a contents analysis of recent issues. The authors are attentive to the intended audience of the serials in addition to the quality of the work published. Finally, there are several indexes to the contents, including a most useful subject index, and a list of other relevant serials that the authors could not review personally. This is a very useful tool for specialists in the field and for librarians charged with acquiring key journals in these specialized subject areas. It could also serve as a useful checklist for existing labor and industrial relations libraries. . . .?-Choice
