This book is a wide-ranging, radical and highly innovative critique of the prevailing orthodoxies within industrial relations and human resource management. It contains a detailed examination of the evolution of industrial relations arguing that the area is often under-theorised and influenced by the policy agenda of the state or employers. Subjects covered include: * central problems in industrial relations * the mobilisation theory of collective action * the growth of non-union workplaces and the prospects and desirability of a new labour-management social partnership * an historical account of worker collectivism, organization and militancy and state or employer counter-mobilisation * a critique of postmodernism and accounts of the end of the labour movement.
