"A Guide to Sources of Information on the National Labor Relations Board" shall serve as "the" basic reference guide to publicly available, published and unpublished, sources of information about one of the most important, and unusual, of all federal administrative agencies. The NLRB discharges its responsibilities in the midst of an ongoing political and economic private sector struggle for advantage between labor and management. This volume will be an indispensable tool for those interested and involved in this struggle, providing the necessary information on key subjects from government documents, archival and manuscript sources, case files and papers of key individuals and organizations, to court decisions and internet resources.
The book also provides crucial historical information on the NLRB and its two predecessor boards dating from 1933; and an essay on the ever changing world of labor law will offer students, lawyers, scholars, researchers, and policy makers the theoretical and practical keys to the purpose and activities of the NLRB, and insight into the evolution of public policy regarding government's role in maintaining a level playing field in the world of work.
..."this book is a splendid achievement. Gordon Law has brought together all the information one needs to find - or, in some cases, to find where to find - the many pockets of NLRB-related data, historical and legal. For both the novice and the experienced researcher, this "Guide will be of great value."
