Back cover copy

Labor Regulation in a Global Economy is the first work in the field of industrial relations to categorize and comprehensively analyze all of the theoretical and practical aspects of international labor regulation for researchers and students of human resource management (HRM), and it offers realistic policy guidelines for nonacademic HRM practitioners, nongovernmental organizations, trade unions, and governments. This book focuses primarily upon the issues, organizations, and individuals in the United States charged with labor regulation -- NAFTA, the U.S. GSP program, trade unions, activists, and "grass-roots" movements. However, considerable attention is also given to corresponding European Union issues, organizations, and individuals, as well as the global role of the International Labour Organisation.

Table of contents

In 1944 Moslem forces in China's westernmost province of Xinjiang rose against the Chinese authorities and succeeded in establishing a small independent Islamic state - the East Turkestan Republic. Based on newly available archival material, this book describes the Moslem challenge to Chinese rule and documents the Nationalist government's response to newly awakened Turkic-Moslem nationalism on China's most remote and politically sensitive north-western frontier. With this book, Linda Benson aims to break new ground in the study of Sino-Soviet relations and especially of the policies of Chinese governments toward their national minorities.
