The book provides a comparative analysis of the values and attitudes of industrial workers in thirteen capitalist and ex-socialist countries and China. Evidence suggests the growth of dual identification and commitment, to both the employer and the trade union, rather than one sided identification although the pattern varies internationally. The book provides detailed evidence on changes in a wide range of attitudes (job satisfaction/dis-satisfaction, materialism/post-materialism) between the mid 1980s and the mid 1990s, and their implications for trade unions and managers.
