Synopsis

Industrial Relations by Rae Cooper

This major work offers a broad insight into the field of industrial relations, taking into account the economic, political and social influences and the relative power of capital and labour that shape relations between people at work. Aided by an international editorial advisory board, the collection takes a broad interdisciplinary approach, which includes the interactions between employers, workers, their collective organizations and the state. Key concepts and foundational readings on industrial relations are covered by the first volume, while the second comprises readings on the principal actors in industrial relations. The third volume focuses on industrial relations processes and conflict resolution, leaving the fourth and final volume to deal with outcomes of the industrial relations processes.

Reviews

'The employment relationship is a pivotal institution within all developed and emerging economies. Industrial Relations (IR) is the academic field dedicated to the analysis of this relationship and the contribution of IR scholarship to understanding the world of paid work is summarised in this superb collection. With volumes on foundational texts, employment actors, processes and outcomes, the editors have assembled a collection that draws upon the full range of IR theory and research. They have done an excellent job in compressing more than a century of scholarship into four volumes. In doing so, they have created what will be a key work of reference for many years to come' - Edmund Heery, Professor of Employment Relations, Cardiff Business School'
