Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Six British and Spanish social scientists examine the increasingly hostile environment the European labor unions have faced in the past two decades, the problems it poses for the unions, and the responses they have been developing. They emphasize the unions as actors in industrial relations, correcting the standard perception of them as mere outcomes of other contending forces. Drawing data from the same four industrial sectors in five countries, they make links with the discussion on the degree of convergence in European industrial relations, and test the strategic nature of union responses against models proposed by other writers.
