  • Critical engagement with current debates about international trade union cooperation in the light of historical experience
  • Emphasis on the relationship between internationalization and trade unions' national identities, which has so far been neglected in the labour and industrial relations scholarship
  • Highly interdisciplinary book, which contributes not only to labour and industrial relations studies, but also to scholarship in comparative and international political economy, transnational history, and nationalism studies
  • Historically grounded and comparative micro case study of trade union politics in multinational firms over a time period of more than three decades
