This is an exciting collection of essays by an internationally distinguished group of writers. It is the first book of its kind to take stock of what cmmunity labour law has achieved to date but also explores its directions in the future. The book is ambitious in scope, covering the foundations of EC labour law, the principal policy developments which have shaped it, institutional relations and the extent to which these policies have been implemented in fields such
as discrimination, employment, immigration, and the Social Fund. This collection will appeal to students and practitioners of European Community law, labour law, and social policy. The essays are written in honour Professor Lord Wedderburn of Charlton, the doyen of European labour law studies and one
of the century's outstanding legal scholars.

"The scope of the book is far-reaching...The creation of this book was an ambitious project. It clearly had a long gestation period but this may have been inevitable in order to bring together the work of such eminent scholars...this book clearly would be a valuable addition to any library and a worthy tribute to Bill Wedderburn."
