Investigates the crisis of industrial relations which followed the 1988 Piper Alpha disaster, the world's worst offshore accident. Appraises the current offshore safety regulatory regime instituted after the disaster, and examines the oil industry's attempts to contain further regulatory interference. Details the history of trade unionism in the industry and strategies of employers to sustain a union-free environment. Concludes that offshore safety is little or not at all improved. For scholars interested in industrial relations. Distributed by Books International. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
