This is the first comparative study of the background, development, laws, structure, and impact of teacher unionism in fifteen nations around the world. This ground-breaking analysis provides an international perspective on teaching the world's most populous profession--the forming of unions, collective bargaining, current policies and problems, and future possible reforms. This unique study describes the role of unions in national affairs and the various relationships between governments and the labor movement.
