Chapter 2: Marxism
This chapter provides an outline of the main elements of Marxism such as dialectical and historical materialism; exploitation; alienation; class, class struggle, and the role of the state. This is then applied to employment relations issues in terms of both explaining the ideological nature of HRM and providing concrete examples of how Marxists would analyse key issues such as pay, collective bargaining, employee engagement, and discrimination.
