Personnel management and industrial relations by Dale Yoder( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1986 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Personnel and labor relations, the predecessor of this book, appeared in the midst of widespread depression and unemployment. Today manpower is at a premium. The whole field of industrial relations is highly dynamic. Under such circumstances, the most essential characteristic of effective personnel administration is its constant self-appraisal and evaluation. Policies and practices must be constantly scrutinized and weighed in terms of their appropriateness and effectiveness. The continual testing of each phase of the industrial relations program, as a basis for constant readjustment, innovation, and adaptation, is the elementary requisite of a satisfactory program in these years of rapid change. The present book reflects the valuable suggestions of those who made extensive use of Personnel and labor relations. The techniques of statistical materials, excepting for a preliminary chapter on the simpler devices, have been brought together at the close of chapters in special sections. Another change involves the more extensive reference, throughout the book, to psychological contributions to the field, while another is the expansion of the discussion of collective bargaining. Throughout, additional questions and exercises on each chapter have been provided. They have proved especially useful in classes made up of adults, who find them helpful as a check-list to apply to their reading. Finally, a new chapter on personnel records seemed necessary to round out the description of present practice"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

The scenery includes roiling oceans, still ponds, swift rivers, & bubbling brooks, & the fish themselves range from the noble trout to salmon, tarpon, bass, dolphin, permit, flounder, grouper, weakfish, northern pike, & even a sea monster. Humor, chicanery, the surprise ending, love of the sport & skill at the craft, friendship between old & young, & romance in unexpected places--all are found here. This collection includes three timeless stories: the Grimm fairy tale "The Fisherman & His Wife," first published in 1815; "A Fishing Excursion," by the mid-19th-century French writer Guy de Maupassant; & Henry Van Dyke's 1899 tale, "The Fatal Success." The remaining stories span the 20th century & represent contemporary favorites such as Stephen King & E. Annie Proulx; early-century masters Stephen Vincent Benet & John Taintor Foote; & Philip Wylie, P.J. O'Rourke, Robert Traver, & more

From duck, goose, bear, and grouse hunting to stiffer contests for deer, elk, moose, bear, and big African game -- in one case, even a manhunt -- all kinds of hunting and all possible outcomes, from the comic to the heartwarming, disastrous, or bizarre, are explored. Against the backdrop of ocean, frozen swamp, forest, or jungle, we see the deep bonds between father and son, huntsman and dog, man and nature being forged or chattered as the line between sport and survival blurs, and the hunter risks becoming prey to weather, to circumstance, or to human and animal foes
