Editorial Reviews

"Overall the standards of the contributions are high, the book is very well referenced and presented, and at the level of editors' commentary it is extremely valuable. In addition, the volume is set out in a form which should be accessible to a wide range of social scientists interested in the determinants of employers' labour policies and their contribution to diverging (or converging) national patterns of industrial relations. The editors should be congratulated on their efforts and level of scholarship."-"Relations Industrielles, 1993 "To a remarkable degree, [the editors] have marshalled this collection of essays to the cause they are advancing, which is nothing less than an assault on the basic premises of modern scholarship on the management of labor."-"Business History Review ." . . an important and scholarly book."-"Political Studies "The volume is rich, dense, and diverse...the stand-alone value of the individual chapters is almost uniformly high.."-"Contemporary Sociology
