'This work is most welcome ... it can be confidently stated that although not all readers will agree with either Hugh Collins' starting points or his conclusions, they will have been stimulated into arguments far more conceptual, fundamental and wide-ranging than one normally associates with the topic of dismissal. This is a most worthy addition to the OUP monograph series.' Hazel McLean, Trinity College, Cambridge, Industrial Law Journal, Vol. 21, No. 4, December 1992 'Collins' book is the third to appear in the excellent new series Oxford Monographs on Labour Law ... the joy of the book is that, as well as interesting and informing the reader, it does stimulate a desire to discuss and debate ... It will provide the starting point for many a lively seminar ... and the point of departure in many an academic article.' Linda Dickens, University of Warwick, Industrial Relations Journal 'Collins remains sensitive to the conflicting considerations - of efficiency and security of employment - at the heart of the legislation. Collins has written a powerful exposition of the legitimating principles in the law.' Michael Ford, University of Hull, The Modern Law Review, Vol. 56, March 1993 `Collins raises and answers some interesting questions surrounding the policy aims and the application of the legislation on unfair dismissal. He is particularly good on remedies. The book can profitably be read by service industry personnel who already have an understanding of how the law on this topic fits together.' The Service Industries Journal
