Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(2), 199–200. Reviews the book, The Union and its Members: A Psychological Approach by Julian Barling, Clive Fullagar, and E. Kevin Kelloway (1992). The editors integrate organizational behavior and organizational psychology with the study of unions, facilitating a reapproachment between two fields that have often appeared to be at odds with, even antagonistic toward, one another. The book provides an excellent and cogent summary of research on unions and is a reference that should find a home on the shelf of any scholar interested in employment relationships. the authors have provided a comprehensive and provocative volume that represents an initial step in encouraging both union and organizational scholars to explore common interests. Their contribution is twofold: They have provided a current and topical summary of the research on the psychological aspects of unions, and they have begun to forge the links that will help bridge the research between union and organizational scholars.
