Overview

Suggesting that new discourses in labor law are emerging from a European normative process in which the employment law and policies of the European Union and the employment laws and policies of the member states, Sciarra (labor law, U. of Florence Law School, Italy), Davies (commercial law, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK), and Freedland (employment law, U. of Oxford, UK) present 10 essays that examine such a normative process in the case of the regulation of part-time work. Opening essays spell out the theoretical background and introduce the development of European regulation of part-time work. The remaining contributions provide country case studies of France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
