Professor Thomas A. Kochan, Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA How is globalisation impacting on employment relations? What is the context for Human Resource Management in other countries? What can we learn from the experiences of other countries?

The introduction and conclusion examine the relevant theories and latest trends while an appendix provides valuable comparative data.

They outline the major players' and evaluate such processes as arbitration, consultation and employee participation. They also discuss non-unionised workplaces, novel forms of HRM, law reform, multinational enterprises, differences between eastern and western companies, small and medium sized enterprises, technological change, flexibility and pay determination.
