Editorial Reviews

Industrial and Labor Relations Review
...delightfully concise and well-written.
Jacques Delors
The study, as well as providing a thorough analysis, gives some useful and concrete suggestions. Most importantly of all, it reminds us that the historical experience of the last forty-five years shows that greater labour participation in governance has been associated not only with a period of peace among the major powers but also sustained prosperity for all the social partners. The study is right to conclude that labour should be fully incorporated into the process of international economic co-operation which is so essential to the interdependent world economy of the 1990's.
John Kenneth Galbraith
This small, concisely argued book opens up a very large new subject-how labor accommodates to and improves its position in a world of increasingly internationalized trading relationships. Its question: if producing firms can go to the country of greatest advantage, why cannot workers for their part do the same? Here is the case for allowing them to do so, with a searching view of what stands in the way.
