Charles Whalen's book identifies avenues leading to the revitalization of industrial relations as an academic discipline. The contributors, a stellar assemblage of the field's leading scholars, demonstrate there is much work to be done: the scope and intellectual content of industrial relations need to be reconsidered; academic and social institutions must be reshaped; and, new conceptual and practical issues demand attention. The authors of the present volume examine a broad range of issues.Some chapters in this book explore the conceptual boundaries and core assumptions of the field; others examine topics including industrial relations law, social capital and industrial relations institutions, changes to the field's academic curricula, the impact of the structure of academic departments on industrial relations scholarship, the state of labor and employment journals, and new approaches to the integration of teaching and community service. There is a wrap-up chapter by MIT's Thomas Kochan that ties all this together and presents additional insights on the revitalization of the field. Industrial relations scholars, labor studies, sociology and business professors as well as many practitioners will find much to recommend in this book.

A lauded contribution to historical sociology, "Class and the Color Line" is an analysis of organizing across racial lines by two labor movements in the U.S. South during the 1880s and the 1890s. The Knights of Labor and the Populists were the largest and most influential labour movements of their day, and the first to undertake large-scale organizing in the former Confederate states, where they attempted to recruit African Americans as fellow labourers and voters. Scholars have long debated whether the two movements were genuine in their efforts to enroll black workers. Joseph Gerteis argues that that debate is misguided. At different moments and in various settings, the Knights and the Populists included some non-whites and excluded others. Where and why they drew racial boundaries are the subjects of Class and the Color Line. Gerteis moves back and forth between broader examinations of the movement and more specific investigations of local organizing. At the movement level, his analysis is based on data from the central journals of the Knights of Labor and the two major Populist organizations, the Farmers Alliance and the People's Party. These organizational narratives reveal how the movements defined their own interests and identities, and how they made sense of the tangled boundaries between race and class. Gerteis explores how these collective narratives motivated action in specific contexts: in Richmond and Atlanta in the case of the Knights of Labor, and in Virginia and Georgia in that of the Populists. In the process, he demonstrates how local material, political, and social conditions enabled or constrained interracial organizing.

This book brings together the work of leading international thinkers working in the overlapping areas of economics, organization studies, business history, corporate strategy, and innovation. There is a growing awareness that the perspectives of a single discipline are unable to capture and explain the complexities and dynamics of firm behaviour, organizational structure, and corporate strategy. All the chapters in this book are drawn from the pioneering journal Industrial and Corporate Change opening up the inter-disciplinary coverage of the journal to a wider readership. Here readers will find extensive and original contributions from economists Oliver Williamson, Richard Nelson, and Martin Fransman; sociology and organization theorists Mark Granovetter and Gary Hamilton; business historians William Lazonick and Jonathan West; innovation scholars Parimal Patel, Keith Pavitt, and Giovanni Dosi; and business strategists David Teece and Gary Pisano. This book will be vital reading for all those who want to get to grips with the best of current international thinking on the dynamic interplay of technology, organization, and competition.

"LeMasters' book is a valuable and popularly written source of information on the attitudes of working class men and women. Highly recommended."--"Library Journal" "Blue-Collar Aristocrats" is a major statement about a group of Americans too little understood and too long ignored by by the country's decision- and policy-makers. Thanks to the work of E. E. LeMasters, we now have a rare and human insight into the lives, feelings, attitudes, and problems of America's blue-collar aristocrats--one that has the potential both to add to our knowledge and to contribute toward solutions to some of our nation's broadest social problems. "LeMasters has given us a brilliant sketch of what the well-developed unions have created--the average American. He's great."--"West Coast Review of Books" "This is not a dry sociogram. The quality of life of these people comes with the smell of smoke and beer, the sounds of boisterous laughter above a blaring juke box and the clicking of the pool balls."--"New York Times".
