Labour Relations

by Frank Burchill

About this book

This new and updated 4th edition of Labour Relations provides a lively and thought-provoking introduction to industrial relations, set within a broader political, economic and historical context. The author focuses on important but often neglected topics amenable to theoretical analysis, especially in relation to industrial relations theory, and draws on his extensive experience of advising governments, blue-chip companies and employment organisations to enliven the book with real-world analysis.

Labour Relations is ideal for upper level undergraduate and postgraduate students, offering an accessible, up-to-date and multi-perspective analysis of the subject.
