TitleWork and society : labour and human resources in East Asia
Editors
Issue Date1996
PublisherHong Kong : Hong Kong University Press
AbstractThis is a memorial volume which pays tribute to the late Professor Keith Thurley. It collects a number of critical and insightful essays which discuss some of the key issues affecting corporate management, human resource development and the workplace in the current context of East Asian societies, to which Professor Thurley was closely linked in his scholarly career at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The perspectives which are canvassed in these writings are diverse but well integrated, introducing the readers to how work and society in this dynamic part of the world can be viewed from a mix of academic disciplines including management and organizational studies, sociology, psychology, political economy, international studies, history, industrial relations and labour law
This book is an important piece of benchmark reference for academics, students, managers and other practising specialists who wish to update their understanding and knowledge about people in work and business in East Asia today
