Modern labor economics has continued to grow and develop since the first volumes of this Handbook were published. The subject matter of labor economics continues to have at its core an attempt to systematically find empirical analyses that are consistent with a systematic and parsimonious theoretical understanding of the diverse phenomenon that make up the labor market. As before, many of these analyses are provocative and controversial because they are so directly relevant to both public policy and private decision making. In many ways the modern development in the field of labor economics continues to set the standards for the best work in applied economics.
This volume of the Handbook has a notable representation of authors - and topics of importance - from throughout the world.

The quality of the papers of this volume is uniformly high. The editorial objectives have been achieved, and I expect that this handbook will become the standard reference work for many of the most important areas of labour economics.
The Economic Journal
The two very substantial and thorough volumes of this handbook together present a comprehensive survey of the state of the art in labour economics. The first volume deals with the supply of and demand for labour as well as problems of
the wage structure; the second volume treats equilibrium, friction and institutional structures of the labour market.
