Description - Employment Relations in a Changing Society by Luis Enrique Alonso

This book evaluates three decades of change in employment and social regulation, questioning the paradigm of Post-Fordism as a stable development within contemporary capitalism. Bringing together leading commentators, it critiques the assumption that there is a new stable, decentralized regime of employment that is post-bureaucratic and flexible. The book asks four key questions. To what extent have labour markets changed? How has the state as a labour market player influenced such developments? How are changes in working relationships to be understood given changing gender relations and family structures? How has labour collectivism itself been re-shaped politically and institutionally?
