What impact have multinational companies had in the Third World? Beyond Multinationalism offers a detailed comparison of employment conditions and labor relations in businesses operated by the same companies in Europe and India. Drawn from primary source material not readily available elsewhere, this fascinating study demonstrates that Indian-based subsidiaries of multinationals operate quite differently than their European counterparts. Topics addressed include employment patterns, bargaining structures, working conditions, organizational structure, and the impact of new technologies. Beyond Multinationalism will interest scholars and students in management studies, economics, development studies, industrial relations, and policy studies. "Provides a detailed comparison. . . . Draws on several years of contact with managers and trade unionists." --EFMD: European Foundation for Management Development "[This book is] a welcome addition to the small number of studies on industrial labour in India." --Development and Change

`...a welcome addition....an interesting study of trade union and management practices in contrasting industrial environments.' - Development and Change `This is an impressive study which looks at management policy and bargaining relationships in the overall employee relations atmosphere of multinationals corporations (MNCs) in Bombay. It is part of a series of studies sponsored under the Indo-dutch programme on alternatives in development.... a book wholeheartedly recommended for those who wish to gain useful insights into the employee relations situation in the country.' - Business India `The book is an interesting empirical account of MNC's managerial practice in India and offers illuminating contrasts with parent company practice in Europe.' - The Times Review of Books `This book will remain an asset to any scholar of industrial relations particularly in the present context of liberalisation.' - Management and Labour Studies `The book provides a depth study of the actual impact of multinational companies on industrial relations in India.' - Marketology Quarterly `This study, which provides a comparative account of employment and labour relations in the units of the same multinationals in India and the Netherlands, is certainly a welcome attempt. The methodology of the study is unconventional in that the authors, having extensively interviewed the managers of the companies and linked this information with other available works, present a neat account of how the employee relations in the companies under study are distinct from what obtains in their counterparts in the Netherlands.' - Sunday Herald `The book is easy to read and written in an interesting style. It is most thoroughly researched and serves as a useful guide to those interested in labour relations in international companies located in India and Holland.' - Relations Indusrielles
