" [...] It is as fatuous to speak of an 'end of industrial relations' as it was, over a decade ago, to write of an 'end of history'.

Indeed, industrial relations scholars are at the forefront of making sense of the changing nature of work and employment relationships, in the process often challenging the oversimplified accounts prevalent in popular discourse.
