Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Rowley (City U. Business School, London) and Benson (management, U. of Melbourne) note that globalization and deregulation are now popular buzzwords in many areas of business, even though globalization's exact meaning and effects remain contested. Their collection focuses on globalization's impacts on labor in part to help balance the overriding emphasis on management issues in the existing literature. And they found that focusing on the Asia Pacific region provided a range of types of economy and labor organization in various contexts and stages of development, demonstrating important contrasts in the way globalization affects workers. The essays address developed countries including Australia, Japan, Singapore, Korea, and Hong Kong, and also the less-developed economies of Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, and Vietnam.
