Labour law is widely considered to be in crisis by scholars of the field. This crisis has an obvious external dimension - labour law is attacked for impeding efficiency, flexibility, and development; vilified for reducing employment and for favouring already well placed employees over less fortunate ones; and discredited for failing to cover the most vulnerable workers and workers in the "informal sector". These are just some of the external challenges to labour law. There is also an internal challenge, as labour lawyers themselves increasingly question whether their discipline is conceptually coherent, relevant to the new empirical realities of the world of work, and normatively salient in the world as we now know it.
This book responds to such fundamental challenges by asking the most fundamental questions: What is labour law for? How can it be justified? And what are the normative premises on which reforms should be based? There has been growing interest in such questions in recent years. In this volume the contributors seek to take this body of scholarship seriously and also to move it forward. Its aim is to provide, if not answers which satisfy everyone, intellectually nourishing food for thought for those interested in understanding, explaining and interpreting labour laws - whether they are scholars, practitioners, judges, policy-makers, or workers and employers.

This book, of twenty-five chapters by thirty authors, is packed with information, insight, argument, and angst. These chapters variously cry grief and despair, call for fundamental reformulation, suggest a less radical range for adaptation and growth, or express sobering cautions even as they echo the last suggestion. ( Matthew W. Finkin, Comparative Labour Law & Policy Journal)
he The Idea of labour law features 25 contributions from 29 leading experts in the field who challenge, in different ways, the way we think about labour law. All of the chapters are informative and thought-provoking. Several are outstanding...Following a useful introduction by the editors, the books successive chapters provide a wealth of information and analysis. ( Anne Trebilcock, International Labour Review)
The Idea of Labour Law is something too important to be left to lawyers alone; so I hope this edited collection is read by a wide audience in employment relations. ( Aaron Rathmell (Barrister) Journal of Industrial Relations)
