This collection of essays examines the role of managers as employees in nine industrialized countries--Britain, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, West Germany, Sweden, France, Italy, and Japan. Focusing on middle managers, including professionals, the contributors document the differences and similarities that exist in the employment relationships of managers in these countries, trace the forces that shape these relationships, and discuss the ways that these relationships have been affected by developments in the business environment over the last two decades. The distinguished contributors include Greg Bamber, Ed Snape, Russell D. Lansbury, Annabelle Quince, David F. Smith, Eberhard Witte, Karl-Olof Faxen, Hakan Lundgren, Jacques Rojot, Claudio Pellegreni, and Vladimir Pucik.
