Written by leading academic labour lawyers, The Law of Work, now in its second edition, presents a principled approach to its subject matter and offers a re-evaluation of the nature, scope, and importance of employment and labour law. It continues to be the most insightful, critical andup-to-date text in this area. The book reflects the authors' conviction that social and economic context is of critical importance to an understanding of the law. Its major themes of contract and co-operation, work and social citizenship, and freedom of association provide the basis for the analysis and critique of the mostsignificant tribunal decisions, cases, and legislative provisions.
Rosemary Owensis Professor and Dean at the School of Law, The University of Adelaide. Joellen Riley is Professor at the School of Law, The University of New South Wales. Jill Murray is Senior Lecturer at the School of Law, La Trobe University.
