Review:

Building a Better World is an essential text for undergraduate teaching in Labour Studies. I would have no hesitation using the text in a first-year introductory classroom. --Suzanne Mills, McMaster University"

Building a Better World affirms the critical role unions play in promoting democracy, greater economic equality, and social justice for all citizens. --James Clancy, National President, National Union of Public and General Employees"

Since it was first published, Building a Better World has been the best available book to introduce readers to unions in Canada. With workers and unions facing increasingly severe attacks from employers and governments, this new version is most welcome. --David Camfield, University of Manitoba, author of Canadian Labour in Crisis"

Building a Better World is a good textbook for my third year commerce students majoring in industrial relations and human resource management. The students seem to like the Basics style of a short, snappy paperback attuned to the reality of industrial relations in Canada, instead of an oversized hardcover book, which often tries to be encyclopedic. --Judy Haiven, Saint Mary s University"
