Summary
Most traditional legal textbooks aim to give students an overview of the present state of law in a particular area. In doing so, most books offer only a cursory assessment of how the law came to be the way it is and how economic, political, and social forces were influential during its evolution. In this innovative study the authors seek to offer students a different kind of text. Guiding students through four and a half decades of almost continuous legislative activity, the authors show how labour law evolved between the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the 1990s, how the law was created and how it looks today. The origins of the legislation providing the current framework of labour law are examined and explained in a way that will appeal not only to lawyers, but also to students of politics, economics, sociology, and labour history
