This book analyzes the crucial features of unionized labor markets in industrialized countries, with particular emphasis on Britain and the United States. The techniques used by economists to model unionized labor markets are carefully explained. The connection between theoretical modeling and empirical testing of the theories is also emphasized. The book is directed to undergraduate economics students studying labor economics and to masters students in economics or industrial relations, but it is also accessible to general readers with a quantitative background.

Industry Reviews

'It would be hard to find a more thorough review and assessment of the literature on trade unions within economics ... very useful, the analysis is excellent.' British Universities Industrial Relations Association Newsletter '... this is altogether a useful monograph on a subject which is relatively rarely reviewed. It is written more for specialists and advanced students and is an excellent reference book for a library.' Marc Tardieu, European Journal of Paediatric Neurology
