Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:"... Der Blickwinkel ist international. Mehr, indem er das Interesse des Lesers auf sozialrechtliche Entwicklungen in einzelnen Weltgegenden ... lenkt, gewinnt die Betrachtung an Konkretheit und gerade dadurch an Tiefgang, Gewicht und Gestalt. . Die Debatte um dieses Recht wird mit diesem Band nicht beendet. Aber es kommt ihm das große Verdienst zu, diese in Deutschland mit dem längst überfälligen internationalen Blick eröffnet zu haben ..." (Eberhard Eichenhofer, VSSR - Vierteljahresschrift für Sozialrecht, 2007, Issue 2, S. 155 f.)
