Studies in Political Economy

SPE - Carleton University

Studies in Political Economy: A Socialist Review is an interdisciplinary journal committed to the publication of original work in the various traditions of socialist political economy. Researchers and analysts within these traditions seek to understand how political, economic and cultural processes and struggles interact to shape and reshape the conditions of people's lives.

Established in 1979, SPE has become a major forum for people who identify with the struggles to overcome exploitation, exclusion and oppression in Canada and abroad. SPE is especially interested in work by, for and about Canadians, but it aims to be an international journal. It welcomes contributions in every field of political economy and within all the traditions of socialist scholarship, including those which question established paradigms.

Those who pursue progressive work within different frameworks will find SPE a venue for communicating with a wide and diversified audience. In addition to articles, SPE publishes interviews, short essays on contemporary political issues, review essays and comments on articles it has published.

Last Autumn, SPE celebrated its 25th anniversary by publishing, among others, a forum on reorganizing trade unions, from a renewal perspective. To subscribe or order that particular issue, please follow this link: SPE - Back Issues and Subscriptions.

Trade Unions in Renewal : A Comparative Study

Edited by Peter Fairbrother and Charlotte Yates
Routledge (Taylor & Francis Group), 2003
ISBN 0826454372/ 0826454364

For years, unions in Anglo-American countries have suffered stagnant or declining memberships. They have experienced diminishing political and economic influence and many are going through crises in the representation of members. During the 1990s a number of unions and labour federations began to debate these problems, and as a result have experimented with a host of new ideas and practices aimed at rebuilding membership and restoring their political and economic strength.

Trade Unions in Renewal brings together a series of studies of union renewal from five different countries - the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Canada. Although unions in the five countries have all been influenced by recent debates surrounding the organizing model, several unions and the five national federations have charted their own coourse of renewal. These ange from internal union democratization and membership mobilization to new partnership models with employers and governments.

The contributors to this volume are among the leading researchers and commentators on trade unionsim in their countries. The introduction offers a rare comparative analysis of convergence and divergence in union renewal strategies across these five countries, while the separate chapters offer a penetrating, critical analysis of union renewal strategies and pose some difficult questions about the likely success of unions as they try to regroup.

Work and Labour in Canada: Critical Issues

Andrew Jackson
Canadian Scholars' Press Inc., mai 2005
ISBN 1-55130-271-3

This original and timely book focuses on critical issues surrounding work and labour in Canada. It is an ideal text for sociology of work courses, which often integrate labour, industry, and the global economy from a Canadian perspective. This book will also be relevant to a wide range of courses in Labour Studies and Industrial Relations programs across Canada. Outside of the academy, policy makers and labour activists will be keenly interested in this new book.

The thesis is change. Work and Labour in Canada examines changes in the labour market, and in workplaces, with a strong empirical component based upon recent Statistics Canada data. The chapters are tailored to an undergraduate audience. They are masterfully written from a labour perspective - that is, concerned with the impacts of changes on workers - but also written on the basis of empirical evidence with supporting summaries of the academic research literature.

Work and Employment in the High Performance Workplace

Edited by :
Gregor Murray, Jacques Bélanger, Anthony Giles and Paul-André Lapointe
Routledge (Taylor & Francis Group), 2002
ISBN 0826447066

The past decade has seen widespread discussion about the transformation of the workplace. There is a general consensus that deep-seated changes are reshaping the way production and work are organized, the way employees, employers and their representatives deal with each other, and the role of governments in this process. There is altogether less consensus about the consequences of such changes for employment relations. Sharp divisions separate those who celebrate the efficiency, knowledge enhancement and emancipating potential of these new production systems and those who bear witness to a workplace increasingly characterized by stress and insecurity.

In this book, a group of leading scholars take stock of the evidence and implications of the high-performance workplace. Drawing on examples from a variety of national contexts, they seek to characterize the nature of current workplace change and assess its implications for the organization of work for workers, managers, employment relations and public policy.
