Review:

`This is a collection of good papers addressing one of the compelling issues of our time.' -- Shaun P. Hargreaves Heap, International Journal of Manpower `This is an important book, addressing a critical topic, and deserves wide readership.' -- Martin Rhodes, Political Studies `This book does a good job of combining theory and description of recent history with policy experiences and hopes. It effectively reminds us that full employment is not some impossible dream, but an attainable goal if we use appropriate theory to analyze employment problems and create the right policies to stimulate employment and maintain it at full employment levels. Not only experts, but lay-people and students will learn much from the contributions in this book.' -- Johan Deprez, Journal of Economic Issues
