Industrial Relations Systems
Published 1960 · Economics, Sociology
In this revised edition, John T. Dunlop updates his general theory of industrial relations, describing it as a set of tools for practitioners that can be used to develop new industrial relations systems or to reform existing ones. He also discusses the transformation of the industrial relations systems of the former Soviet Union. Since the initial publication of this work in 1958, a substantial literature has grown up around Dunlop's theory, which provides a framework for analyzing and interpreting the vast and growing body of information about labour relations. This book is the inaugural volume in a new series, Harvard Business School Press Classics, which will bring back into print works widely recognized as having significant impact on management practice and research.
