"...the publication provides a valuable and balanced introduction to important alternatives to the liberal free-market orthodoxy...this collection of papers gives a helpful survey of the views of some of the prominent scholars active in the study of the ongoing transformation of Europe." American Political Science Review
This book is about unemployment and European unification. It examines the consequences of each and their interconnections. It presents general essays on Europe as a whole, on labor unions and on a variety of case studies including Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands. Its central argument is that the European economy should be reformed but that it should retain many of its managed aspects and be wary of modeling itself on the United States. The book contributes to the literature on European Politics, political economy, and comparative public policy.
