Labour relations in the global fast food industry by Tony Royle( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume is the first of its kind providing an analysis of labour relations in the fast-food industry, which employs many millions of people worldwide. The book focuses on fast-food multinational corporations and their large national competitors in nine countries : the U.S., Canada, the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. The authors use a common framework focusing less on work organization but more on the outcomes of employment practices for employees and their rights to trade union organization and interest representation. This kind of analysis also allows the authors to examine the extent to which multinational enterprises impose or adapt their employment practices to differing national industrial relations systems. --from back cover

The handbook of employment relations, law & practice by Brian Towers( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Changes in working patterns and technology over the last decade have revolutionized the way we work. More people than ever work in white-collar jobs and are unlikely to organize collectively. Other issues such as 'portfolio' careers, the long-hours culture, the global economy, an ageing workforce and changes in employment legislation have completely transformed the working landscape. This fourth edition of "The Handbook of Employment Relations Law and Practice" has been revised to reflect these changes
Galen on anatomical procedures : the later books by Galen( Book )

11 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Galen was probably the greatest medical writer of antiquity and certainly the most prolific. His Anatomical Procedures (c. 200 CE) emobides the results of a lifetime of practical research; it is largely based on verbatim notes of lectures delivered during actual demonstrations of dissection. The work comprises fifteen books, of which only the first eight-and-a-halft have survived in the original Greek. An Arabic translation of the complete work has survived, however, and this has made possible the translation of the final six-and-a-half books (parts of book 9 and books 10-15). Duckworth's translation was originall made from a German translation of 1906, but for this 1962 edition it was revised by Lyons, working directly from the Arabic text, with the co-operation of Towers. Modern names for the parts of the body are inserted in brackets, and an anatomical index is supplied."--Back cover

The cases retain updated studies of Ford, Sainsbury and the controversial Rosyth Royal Dockyard, as well as new cases of teamworking in an electronics multinational, and two studies from Ghana and Korea on the impact of national culture on management." "The Handbook of Human Resource Management is divided into three parts: the first places HRM in an international context with overviews of trends and developments in HRM worldwide. The second part describes and analyses HRM in practice across a wide range of HRM policies and management techniques, from selection and appraisal to training and flexibility. The final part is a collection of case studies of organizations in manufacturing, chemicals, retailing, ship repair and paper manufacturing."--BOOK JACKET
