I posted yesterday on Rachel Arnow-Richman's chapter in an upcoming book, and she responded by suggesting -- rightly so -- that we post as well on the book as a whole. The book is Cynthia L. Estlund (NYU) & Michael Wachter (U. Penn.), Research Handbook on the Economics of Labor and Employment Law (Edward Elgar Publishing forthcoming February 2013). Here's the publisher's description:
This Research Handbook assembles the original work of leading legal and economic scholars, working in a variety of traditions and methodologies, on the economic analysis of labor and employment law. In addition to surveying the current state of the art on the economics of labor markets and employment relations, the volume’s 17 chapters assess aspects of traditional labor law and union organizing, the law governing the employment contract and termination of employment, employment discrimination and other employer mandates, restrictions on employee mobility, and the forum and remedies for labor and employment claims.
Contributors include: R. Arnow-Richman, S. Deakin, Z. Eigen, R. Epstein, C. Estlund, S. Estreicher, B. Hirsch, A. Hyde, S. Issacharoff , C. Jolls, B. Kaufman, M. Kleiner, B. Sachs, E. Scharff, S. Schwab, M. Wachter, D. Weil.
