"Unemployment in Europe" carefully examines why European unemployment is so astoundingly high and examines the policies adopted at local, national and European levels to tackle this growing problem. Unemployment is the most serious economic and social problem in Europe today. Although the extent varies from region to region, for example with relatively low levels in West Germany to high levels in Spain and Greece, it is generally most extreme in the larger cities. The extensive research in this volume lays the foundations for Valerie Symes' excellent analysis. The author scours five detailed case studies to locate the key factors which could be brought together for a Europe-wide solution. "Unemployment in Europe: Problems and Policies" is of immense value to those interested in the prevalent social phenomenon of unemployment. It is also useful for those involved in economics and social policy.

Industry Reviews

"Symes deserves great credit for the thoroughness of her primary research and for the manner in which a multitude of technical and statistical tables are presented...it is a pleasure to read a serious work of economic complexity." -"Financial Times
