New Labor Law Casebook

LaborCongratulations to Seth Harris, Joe Slater, Anne Marie Lofaso, and David Gregory on the publication of their book Modern Labor Law in the Private and Public Sectors: Cases and Materials (LexisNexis, June 2013).  Here's the publisher's description:

Modern Labor Law in the Private and Public Sectors: Cases and Materials presents a truly modern approach to labor law in the United States. It incorporates two modern trends in labor law: the shift of union density from the private-sector to the public-sector and the growth of organizing outside the NLRA process.  The book incorporates both these modern trends, so students entering the practice of labor law - on the side of unions, employers, or government agencies - will understand what they are likely to encounter.

Modern Labor Law in the Private and Public Sectors: Cases and Materials is structured around the life cycles of the organizing and collective bargaining processes.  Each chapter in the book begins with cases and materials relating to private-sector workers and also includes materials relating to the same issue in the context of public-sector employment.  During the course of writing, the authors continually updated the content to reflect the changes in public-sector labor laws in several states and the new debates over policy.

Thanks, Rick. Among other things, this book is designed to let professors teach both private-sector and public-sector labor law in one course using just this one casebook (although there is enough in it to teach just a traditional private-sector course or a stand-alone public-sector course). I hope profs. reading this blog (and others) will give this book a serious look.
