Reprint of the sole edition. Nicholls [1781-1865] was a pioneering poor-law reformer and administrator. While Great Britain's Poor Law Commissioner he drafted the Irish Poor-Law Act (1832). One of the first to assert that relief bred a culture of dependency and a resistance to work, he advocated the abolition of relief except as a last resort. Includes sections on urban poor, workhouses, housing conditions, child labor, vagabonds etc. In addition to the present study, he wrote A History of the English Poor Law (1854) and A History of the Scotch Poor Law (1856). Like his other studies, this one relates the evolution of poor laws since the medieval era to economic, social and political history. Notably sophisticated works, they were held in high regard by Sir Leslie Stephen and F.W. Maitland.

This updated edition offers a fresh approach to the law governing employment relations, emphasising the contemporary policy themes of social inclusion, competitiveness, and the rights of citizenship in the workplace. It acts as a succinct and accessible overview for those new to the subject as well as an excellent summary for students. Employment Law covers all the main areas of the subject including contracts of employment, anti-discrimination law, trade unions, industrial action, and human rights in the workplace. It also discusses how UK law, under the influence of EU law and international protection of human rights, has been transformed for the twenty-first century by pursuing new goals such as helping to achieve a better balance between work and life, to improve the competitiveness of business through partnership institutions, and to provide superior protection for the basic rights of employees in the workplace. Offering frequent comparisons with the law of other countries, including the United States, the book also discusses the effectiveness of employment regulation as well as examining the different national and transnational methods available.

This is a re-issue of a book first published in 1986, which studies the way in which labour law took shape in nine European countries (the Member States of the EEC in 1979)-Belgium, Britain and Ireland, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Luxembourg - from the beginning of the industrial revolution up to 1945. The book explains similarities and differences between modern systems in these countries as the outcome of continuing struggles between different social groups and competing ideologies in the context of industrialisation and economic development.The book thus provides the essential underpinning to its companion, the new book, The Transformation of Labour Law in Europe (Hart: 2009, ISBN: 9781841138701), which continues the historical comparative study of the development of labour law in Europe since 1945. Other contributors include Antoine Jacobs, Thilo Ramm, Bruno Veneziani and Eliane Vogel-Polsky, with the assistance of Ole Hasselbalch and Jean-Claude Javillier.
