'This Handbook is an important contribution to knowledge about employee voice which combines a variety of approaches to the subject by drawing on different disciplines, forms and philosophies. It provides new research from a wide range of national and international experience and covers both collective and individual means of expressing the views of employees in the workplace. A feature of the Handbook is that it covers not only employment relations perspectives on the subject but also draws upon human resource management as well as organizational studies. The editors are leading authors in the subject area and have brought together both established authors and emerging scholars who have fresh approaches to the role of employee voice in organizations and society. I am sure that the Handbook will become a standard reference in the future.' -- Russell Lansbury, The University of Sydney Business School, Australia
'Given that employee voice has become more important recently across a range of disciplines, this book is very timely indeed. It brings together contributions from 50 well-known academics from different countries who provide a comprehensive account of employee voice from a variety of historical and contemporary angles. Crucially it also raises key questions for current and future research and practice. In my view this book should be compulsory reading for academics, policy-makers, practitioners and students in the subject area.' -- Michael Marchington, University of Strathclyde and University of Manchester, UK
'In conclusion, this isn't 'just another' book on employee voice. It is a hugely important contribution to the field. It moves the literature forward and shines a new light on an area of study that is far from saturated. I recommend it as an essential reference for academics, and I should also think it would make a nice supplementary text for courses in human resource management.' -- Dr Andrew Timming, Work, Employment and Society
