Abstract: Trade unions are one of the major social institutions in modern industrial societies. Today, when they increasingly face pressures from social, economic and political changes, it is appropriate to look at their evolution over the last half of this century. This handbook aims to map the variations in union organization and membership in fifteen western European countries. The introductury guide, comparative overview, country profiles, chronologies, cross sectional and time series tables, as well as comparative indicators are intended to facilitate and encourage the comparative and historical study of modern trade union organization. In addition, the CD-ROM provides easy electronic access to handbook tables and to additional databases on national union organizations and their membership series for further individual in-depth analysis. The book is part of the historical data handbook series 'The Societies of Europe', edited by members of the MZES.
