'Regulating the labour market is a distortion for some, a panacea for others. This book provides the ingredients for those who wish to transcend simple positions. Drawing on empirical, inter-disciplinary and comparative perspectives, this unique collection of essays establishes the moral and economic case for regulation, identifies the circumstances that make regulation effective, and reveals the gap between 'law on the books' and 'law in action'. It is a significant resource for scholars and policy-makers who are engaged in thinking about regulation as part of a just market regime.' - Guy Mundlak, Tel-Aviv University
