Globalization and Labour: The New 'Great Transformation'

by

Globalization and Labour: The New 'Great Transformation' Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book to offer a comprehensive analysis of labor's worldwide response to globalization. Ronaldo Munck argues that the national period in labor history is decisively over. Now the labor movement is itself acting in a more transnational manner, with workers developing common interests and ways of organizing that transcend national boundaries. Indeed, the trade union movement could play a major role in the regulation of a global economic system now largely out of control.

Synopsis:

Globalization has been driven by the transnational corporations search for cheap labour, but little attention has been paid to the consequent changes in the world of work. Here, Ronaldo Munck argues that the national period in labour history is decisively over.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [195]-207) and index.
