Advances in Industrial and Labor Relations
This volume in the series Advances in Industrial and Labor Relations contains two papers on industrial relations theory, four papers on high-involvement work practices of which three emphasize unions' roles in such practices, and two papers on labor markets. Taken as a whole, the papers constitute a rich mix of topics, disciplinary perspectives, theory and empiricism, field studies and large scale surveys, and quantitative and qualitative analyses. In this, they can be said to reflect the broad range of trends in contemporary industrial relations and human resource management research. The employment relationship and unionism remain at the heart of this research, though emphasis is increasingly being placed on connecting employment/labor/union/human resource management practices to outcomes at the individual, group, and organizational/enterprise levels of analysis.
