About this book

Myconos explores the ways in which organized labour has globalized since 1945. Using two 'touchstone' indicators - the extent of cross-border integration, and the autonomy vis-à-vis the state - the book reveals a counterintuitive process: network globalization involves a continuing orientation towards the state. The book not only seeks to identify organized labour's trajectory on the macro plane, but also to provide a more precise meaning of the term 'globalization' as it relates to agency.

About the authors

GEORGE MYCONOS researches changing forms of global governance at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. His areas of interest include transnational labour relations, agency and structure within the context of globalization, ideology, and critical international relations theory. His interest in labour relations grew over a ten year period of employment as a postman, and subsequent experience as a trade union activist, delegate and researcher in Melbourne.

Reviews

'He [Myconos] convincingly demonstrates that, despite globalisation's increasing momentum, labour has not followed suit in incorporating a much more explicity international agenda. On this basis alone I recommend The Globalization of Organized Labour to anyone interested in labour studies or internationalism generally.' - Millennium Journal of International Studies
