This Handbook is an authoritative and invaluable reference tool, uniquely analyzing the forces governing unionism, union behavior and union impact from a variety of perspectives, both theoretical and empirical. The fourteen chapters are written in an accessible style by acknowledged leading specialists from the fields of economics and industrial relations. They offer a truly international perspective on this important subject. This superbly comprehensive Handbook examines the determinants of union membership, models of union behavior and the economics of strikes, as well as the effects of unions on wages, pay inequality and firm performance (to include innovation). It also analyzes trade unions as political actors and their impact on macroeconomic performance. Institutional detail is added in specific chapters documenting recent developments in the US and the UK, and prospects for a Europeanization of collective bargaining. A review of union density in more than 100 nations, is also provided.
