Volume 16 of Advances in Industrial and Labor Relations (AILR) contains eight papers that deal with important, interesting and in some cases controversial aspects of industrial and labor relations. These include psychological versus pecuniary approaches to establishing an ownership culture, accounting for union collective action through resource acquisition and mobilization, union avoidance through "double breasting" in multinational companies, labor-management partnership and mutual gains in public services, high-involvement work systems and union-management communication networks, implications for women of private pension reform and personal accounts, competing ethical conceptions of the minimum wage, and a new paradigm for IR/HR theory and research. Several of these papers were winners of and originally presented in "Best Papers" sessions at annual meetings of the Labor and Employment Relations Association (USA).
