Format: Hardcover
This is truly an amazing work, which shows so many models of labor market phenomena at the undergraduate level that an undergraduate's economics education is incomplete without it. This book is essential reading for both undergraduates and policymakers who want to learn labor economics, economics in general, or have a deeper understanding of public policy issues. The best features are its unmatched explanations of human capital models, labor market discrimination models, and labor union models -- which will change the way you think of these issues and give deeper understanding. The book is both concise, deep, a quick and fun read, and makes Nobel-prize winning material accessible to any undergraduate or policy maker.

I teach Labor Economics and this is the best text on the market. A study guide with extra problems would be helpful. Note that critical reviews are about delivery, condition and customer service when using 3rd party sellers. The text itself is excellent.

This was a good textbook for labor economics, very accessible. It describes the theory in good detail then goes on to give examples of what happens in the real world. If I wasn't buying for class, I would still have bought an earlier edition.

I saved 170 dollars over what my school bookstore was charging. Item arrived in great shape. Used (a little rumpled) but no underlines, highlights, or tears.

I am a little biased because labor economics is one of my primary fields of study, but this book informs on a wide range of relevant areas. I would highly recommend it to any undergraduate economics student looking to see applications of microeconomics. However, this is not a graduate text, as can be seen by the lack of calculus in solving micro problems.

The right book that they use at the Salt Lake Community College. Works the way I want it to. Can I ask for more?
