[nice clean copy, book virtually as new with no discernible wear; jacket shows only very minor surface wear, slight wrinkling at bottom of rear flap]. "The topics [of the essays] cover issues of deep social concern, encompassing the jobs and wages of college graduates, discrimination and inner-city youth, homelessness, unionism, and the differences between U.S. labor market institutions and those of other developed countries, including Japan. A thoughtful introduction to each essay reveals the human side of research on these controversial issues. With chapters that range from broad overviews of research to essays employing detailed statistical techniques, this book will appeal to economists, students, and policymakers concerned with how labor markets function and how economists go about their business of discovery without laboratory controls."
