Industrial Relations at the Dawn of the New Millennium
Published in 1998 by the ILR School on the occasion of the dedication of the School's new classroom and library complex, Industrial Relations at the Dawn of the New Millennium also commemorates the distinguished history of the ILR School at Cornell, just over a half century after its founding.
The essays in this volume were contributed by authors who have been a significant part of the ILR's history, and each is a scholarly overview of some aspect of the world of work. The editors, Maurice Neufeld and Jean McKelvey, were founders of the School, and the work as a whole is intended for alumni, scholars, and practitioners, both as a guide to the world of work and as a showcase of the ILR School's contribution to the scholarship surrounding industrial and labor relations.
