Heroic Defeats is a comparative investigation of how unions and firms interact when economic circumstances require substantial job loss. Using simple game theory to generate testable propositions about when these situations will result in industrial conflict, Professor Golden illustrates the theory in a range of situations between 1950 and 1985 in Japan, Italy, and Britain. Additionally, the author shows how the theory explains why strikes over job loss almost never occur in postwar unionized firms in the United States.

Review:

"...Heroic Defeats^r is well worth reading..." Chris Tilly, American Journal of Sociology

"The bibliography will prove enormously helpful to the latter. Upper-division undergraduate through professional." Choice

"Heroic Defeats is an important book, both for what it tells us about strikes and for what it tells us about the strengths and limitations of the methodological approach within political science known as `rational choice'." Chris Howell, Industrial & Labor Relations Review

"In general, the book illuminates a number of the factors at play in job loss situations...the book is well written, illuminating, and clear. I recommend it to all with an interest in the issues covered." Bruce Nissen, Labor Studies Journal
