Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Complementing studies of a local labor market in general and of specific employers, analyzes the work over five years of one organization implementing an equal opportunities and positive action program for ethnic minority workers in Liverpool. Looks at how the civil service department identified only as VAT developed its policies and interacted with other agencies, and at the effects of economic and political contingencies facing it and its clients. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
