Segmented Labor Markets and Labor Mobility
Edited by Michael Reich, Professor of Economics and Director, Institute for Research on Labor
and Employment, University of California, Berkeley, US
For this insightful collection, Professor Reich has selected some of the most significant published articles on labor
mobility and segmented markets. The book investigates the development of this important field from the pioneering
papers on labor market segmentation analysis of the 1970s, through the early debates to the later theoretical models
and econometric evidence. The second volume offers an overview of the evolution from segmentation to flexibility in
labor markets up to the present day and explores topics such as the growth of temporary jobs in Europe, the influence of
gender, immigration and race, later econometric controversies and the phenomenon of flexicurity.

The volumes will be an essential resource for students and for scholars wishing to investigate this important area.
33 articles, dating from 1971 to 2007
Contributors include: A.L. Booth, D.M. Gordon, A. Manning, M.J. Piore, G. Rodgers, S. Rosenberg, J. Rubery, R.M. Solow, P. Taubman
