Product Description


The great strength of this excellent work lies in its analysis of issues. (Australian Journal of Labour Law)

This is yet another distinguished addition to the series Oxford Monographs on Labour Law ... a detailed and analytical treatment of one of the central and most problematic areas of doctrine ... not a second edition but a complete reconceptualisation with a new title. (Industrial Relations Journal)

The high level of abstraction and the detailed and carefully constructed arguments used throughout the book are perhaps the greatest source of its strength. (Industrial Relations Journal)

... the significance of a work such as this is its capacity to shape judicial conceptions and views of the purpose and scope of contracts in the employment sphere irrevocably. This book is certain to become influential in the law schools; it deserves to be influential in practice long before the students of today take their places on judicial benches. (Industrial Relations Journal)

This book updates and builds upon the author's earlier book on the contract of employment published in 1976. It makes interesting reading from an academic standpoint. (International Company and Commercial Law Review)

... stimulating throughout ... This is a book of interest to a wide audience. Clearly it will have immense appeal to those interested in the theory of the contract of employment and related contracts. It also has much to offer those in legal practice. Someone constructing a case in a problematic area stands to gain much from the consistently penetrating analysis. The author's knowledge and understanding of the law in this area is extraordinary and he has produced a stimulating and frequently provocative work of outstanding scholarship. (Industrial Law Journal)

This book provides an excellent and thought-provoking analysis of the current trends and tensions. (The Cambridge Law Journal)

The strength of this book is that it engages in a series of important debates which will cause lawyers interested in the field to reconsider and reassess their own assumptions, and to ponder anew the significance of the set of contractual relationships which still lie at the heart of the labour law. (The Cambridge Law Journal)
