  • 'This is by far the most comprehensive, authoritative, and scholarly work of a extraordinarily complex phenomenon from multiple perspectives and multiple disciplines. It is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the why, how, when and the so what in the relationship between employees and the firm. It is rich with new insights for both the researchers and the managers, a truly outstanding contribution to the field.' -Anne S. Tsui Arizona State University

To fully comprehend the employment relationship, a multi-disciplinary and international perspective is required. This volume draws on social exchange, economics, industrial relations, legal, and justice theories to explore and extend our understanding of the employment relationship. Bringing together these different perspectives provides greater clarity, synthesis and understanding of the employment relationship. This book will become a vital reference for those researching or teaching about work and employment.
