"Union Voices: Tactics and Tensions in UK Organising." Melanie Simms, Jane Holgate, and Edmund Heery. Cornell University Press. September 2012. --- In Union Voices, three industrial relations scholars evaluate how labour unions fared in the political and institutional context created by New Labour. Drawing on extensive empirical evidence, Melanie Simms, Jane Holgate, and Edmund Heery present a multilevel analysis of what organizing means in the UK, how it emerged, and what its impact has been. Pietro Manzella finds that this book is successful in its attempt to provide a different research focus by which organising activity is investigated.
