[Extract] The late Craig Littler died on 8 September last year in Townsville, Queensland where, for less than two years, he had been the Head of School of Business at James Cook University, after having returned to Australia from appointments at the Universities of London and St Andrews. To honour the important contribution he made to the study of the social and economic relations of work, this issue of Labour and Industry has been dedicated to him.
Craig Littler's career spanned 40 years, with academic appointments in both Australia and the United Kingdom. In Australia he is best remembered as the founding editor of Labour and Industry and for his work on the phenomenon of corporate downsizing. His publications on downsizing include the co-authored (with Richard Dunford, Tom Bramble and Andrew Hede) 'The Dynamics of Downsizing in Australia and New Zealand', published in the Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resources (Littler et al., 1997) in which opposing trends were discovered between downsizing in the two countries. A subsequent publication (Littler et al., 2003) added author Retha Weisner and country South Africa to the comparative study.
