The relationship between workers and firms are changing worldwide. Nowhere is this more evident than in the psychological contracts of employment.

This book combines the cross-national perspectives of organizational scholars from thirteen countries to examine how societies differ in the nature of psychological contracts in employment and how global business initiatives are bridging these differences.

The contributors include social scientists with deep knowledge of the particular societies they describe, and whose personal scholarship involves psychological contract phenomena locally as well as abroad.

Readers of Denise Rousseau's award winning book, Psychological Contract in Organizations (Sage 1995) will welcome the extension of this ground-breaking work into the global arena.
