This authoritative two-volume collection brings together the most important published papers on the economics of schooling and school quality, issues which are at the heart of current intellectual and policy debates. Volume I presents articles on labor markets, distribution, including the structure of wages and wage inequality and the effects of schooling on economic growth. Volume II includes papers on efficiency, competition and finance and policy. The mixture of classic papers and cutting edge research provides an invaluable reference source for both students, researchers and professionals.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`. . . the editor has done a commendable job of selecting some of the best available research on these core aspects of economics of education. . . The two volumes are rich in content, and hence, should be warmly welcomed. The set provides a good mix of theoretical, methodological and empirical aspects and policy issues. Not only students and researchers of economics of education, but also those interested in economics of growth, wages, labour markets etc., will also benefit from the collection.' -- Jandhyala B.G. Tilak, Journal of Educational Planning and Administration
`Does education cause economic growth? Is education a kind of human capital formation? The human investment revolution in economic thought started in earnest over 40 years ago and then seemed to peter out in the 1970s and 80s. More recently, it has taken off again, perhaps with renewed vigour. This collection by a leading authority in the field will bring home to readers how much exciting work is now once again going on in the economics of education.' -- The late Mark Blaug, formerly of the University of London and University of Buckingham, UK
