Editorial Reviews

Review

"A complete graduate labor text! The theory is current yet absolutely clear, and the links to empirical work explicit. Throughout, the authors stress the relevance of the theory and empirical results for policy questions."--Daniel S. Hamermesh, Centennial Professor of Economics, University of Texas at Austin

From the Inside Flap

"This book is an impressive achievement. It offers a uniquely comprehensive, technically in-depth, and up-to-date treatment of modern labor economics suitable for graduate teaching." --David H. Autor, Department of Economics, MIT

"This book will prove a landmark. The field of labor economics has not yet had a technically oriented text, and this book fills the gap. The scholarship is most impressive, and the authors should be congratulated." --Paul Ryan, Professor of Labour Economics, King's College London

"A complete graduate labor text! The theory is current yet absolutely clear, and the links to empirical work explicit. Throughout, the authors stress the relevance of the theory and empirical results for policy questions." --Daniel S. Hamermesh, Centennial Professor of Economics, University of Texas at Austin

"An encyclopedic, integrated, and thoroughly modern presentation of labor economics, from supply and demand decisions to unemployment to the role and effects of institutions. Topics with which I am familiar have been given a clear, concise, precise, balanced, and convincing treatment. This is an outstanding textbook." --Olivier Blanchard, Department of Economics, MIT

If you work in the field, you will need this book. You can use this as a reference or you can read it straight through. Either way, your time will not be wasted.

The quality of the writing is superb, considering that it is a translation.

While this text could be difficult for the average graduate student, it's the first grad level textbook I've ever seen for labor economics. The material is current, and I have used parts of it for the 2nd graduate course in labor economics..
