About this product
- DescriptionDebates around the origins, nature, value, effectiveness and sustainability of various 'models' of capitalism have become increasingly prominent since the collapse of the state socialist political and ecomic systems in the early 1990s. While comparative studies of the differing configurations of business and political systems have always been relevant and important, these discussions toward the end of the 20th century marked the arrival of the distinct field of study often labelled the 'varieties of capitalism' school of thought. Developments in the field and in the broader macro-ecomy since that time have been very substantial, and the literature selected for this Major Work provides a much-needed comprehensive overview of these developments, going back to the Cold War era to explore some of the earlier discussions of the divergence and convergence of 'industrial models', and progressing back through to the modern day by incorporating critiques and newer developments in 'varieties of capitalism' theorising.
- Author BiographyLeo McCann is Professor of Organisation Studies at Manchester Business School. His research and teaching focuses on the impacts of large-scale economic change on work and organization across numerous countries. He has written many articles on the subject of the international transformation of white-collar work in journals such as Journal of Management Studies, Human Relations, and Organization Studies. He is the co-author of Managing in the Modern Corporation(Cambridge University Press, 2009), a major empirical study into the restructuring of white-collar work in the UK, USA and Japan. His research draws on the paradigms of sociology of work, varieties of capitalism, and political economy, exploring how large-scale 'global' transformations are translated through national institutional structures with often profound effects on the everyday lives of organizations, managers, workers and citizens. He is also the author of International and Comparative Business: Foundations of Political Economies (Sage Publications, 2014), a textbook based on over a decade of experience teaching and researching comparative capitalism, globalization, and the restructuring of organizations and work.
