I found this to be an excellent well written and surprisingly readable summary of modern labour law. Granted the law is constantly changing so a book such as this has limited shelf life but if they keep updating it, as I am sure they will, then it is a worth edition to the books I use. Also the kindle edition makes it far more transportable when I am out on cases than a large tome

This along with Deakin and Morris should be regarded as the seminal text in Labour Law. It is completely comprehensive in its coverage of the law and contains much on the international context which is missing from most books in the area. Despite the fact that it might be perceived as produced for the heavyweight end of the market, it is written in a clear style and therefore more than suitable for any undergraduate who is prepared to put in the effort of reading what at first sight might appear (wrongly) to be a 'difficult' book. It is an indispensable book for any postgraduate student, researcher or teacher in employment law, and will also be of significant use and interest to practitioners and trade unionists as a reference work.
