164 pp., bibliography, index. Dr. Imbun presents the findings of research into the industrial and employment relations in the Papua New Guinea mining industry, with particular reference to the Porgera gold mine. He examines the challenges that multinational minign companies go hrough in the formation and control of the workforces in PNG mines. Recruitment, training, localization and industrial relations issues are discuesse din relation to several mines, including Porgera. he analyses two crucial concepts, pluralism and exceptionalism to draw attention to the fact that PNG's industrial relations system is pluralistic in nature and approach; and therefore, exceptionalwhen compared to similar developing countries. Further, he also analyses two theoretical models; Kerr et al.'s (1960) general model of industrialization, and Siddique's (1989) state model. He assess their applicability and relevance to PNG's human resource development and industrial relations system, particularly in the mining industry. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory #
