About the Author:

Christel Lane, Lecturer in Sociology, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, University of Cambridge and Fellow, St John's College, Cambridge, UK

Review:

`Management and Labour in Europe is virtually without peer in that it brings much of the latest literature in industrial relations and management studies to bear on the subject of how institutions at the micro level shape the political economy. I view it as essential reading for scholars of comparative political economy and European politics.' -- Peter A. Hall, Harvard University, US `Everywhere in the book, one gets the feeling of an authoritative grasp of facts, figures and meanings, but everything is placed in the proper context and has been weighted in relation to competing or complementary findings. . . . despite the complexity and richness of findings taken on board, I found that the text is easy and compelling to read.' -- Arndt Sorge, Organization Studies `This book is scholarly and informative. It breaks new ground in providing a systematic comparison of three societies and in covering both management/organisations and trade unions/industrial relations/work organisation in one volume. The author's judgement seems to me in general to be very shrewd and balanced.' -- Richard K. Brown, University of Durham, UK `This book provides a clear, logical and helpful discussion of management in Europe - a topic that is becoming increasingly important for teaching, research and policy. It is well thought-out and skilfully documented.' -- Michael Rose, University of Bath, UK `The positive aspects of Management and Labour in Europe are many and its faults are few. I highly recommend it for anyone seriously interested in comparative IR and HRM.' -- Roy D. Adams, Industrial Relations `. . . a readable and thoughtful presentation of social science research, reports etc. . . . It is informed by a sensible and carefully presented view on the possibilities of the transfer of industrial culture/institutions from one society to another, and it seems set fair to be a useful general source book for some years to come.' -- Theo Nichols, Sociological Review `The book deals principally with very up-to-date British, French and German Industrial examples and not only covers the literature on the topic very well, but contains very incisive analyses of organisational style and structure especially in the Federal Republic.' -- Malcolm Warner, Journal of General Management `Overall this book is an excellent starting point for any study of many industrial issues concerning German, British and French Industry. Dr Lane provides admirable, wide ranging, comparative surveys of recent literature, carefully making clear areas where there are conflicting views. There are very few specialists, let alone students, who will not benefit from her guidance through the more sociological literature on the three countries.' -- Chris Wrigley, Business History
