Labour Supply and Incentives to Work in Europe highlights recent developments in the labour supply in Europe and gives a detailed assessment of their link with economic policies and labour market institutions. Despite major changes in European labour supply during the past few decades, the existing literature still lacks a comprehensive study of the relationship between labour supply and labour market institutions from a macro perspective. The contributors, themselves from a variety of academic disciplines and backgrounds, consider aspects of labour supply such as incentives to work, determinants of labour force participation and new forms of employment relationships. Each original and specially written chapter has its own discussion chapter to follow it. The book ends with a valuable panel discussion on the topic of labour supply in an enlarged Europe. This book will be read with interest by scholars of economics and labour economics in particular, as well as those researching industrial relations.

`The book is a nice collection of articles - each contribution followed by the comment for a discussant - that centres on labour supply in Europe. . . the book provides interesting reading, and the editors' foreword offers a good summary of the contributions of the many authors an, in linking the four parts of the book, helps the reader see them as a whole. . . the book is worth reading. It contains interesting contributions that provide enough food for thought on the many factors that impinge on the decision to participate in the labour force and particularly on those that constrain women's labour-force involvement.' -- Giovanni Russo, Journal of Income Distribution
