ABSTRACT
This article presents some updates from the Institute of Labor and Industrial Relations, University of Illinois as of July 1965. Professor Adolf Sturmthal has completed two major research projects during 1964, and their results were published in "Workers Councils: A Study of Workplace Organization on Both Sides of the Iron Curtain," and "Current Manpower Problems: An Introductory Survey." Sturmthal has also compiled and edited a comparative study of white-collar trade unions in nine countries. The volume, now in press, consists of individual presentations by different authors on Great Britain, the U.S., Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria, Japan, and Australia, and a comparative essay by Sturmthal suggesting some generalizations that can be derived from the studies of the other contributors. Solomon B. Levine, in collaboration with H. Kawada, is completing a study of the historical development of Japanese manpower resources in the process of industrialization. They are also continuing to work on a long-range study of the impact of technological change and economic growth upon Japanese industrial relations systems in comparison with advanced Western nations.
