In the six years since the appearance of the first edition of Stephen Smith's book, labour ecomics has become a more firmly entrenched subject on the curriculum. Previously regarded as a subsection within industrial ecomics, there are w very few universities that do t devote a course to it in its own right. The focus of topics covered within it has also altered - the tion of human capital has w become much more central and microecomic considerations are w as widely studied as macroecomic phemena. The second edition will address these changes and give greater centrality to microecomics to reflect current course teaching. With superb features such as case studies, end of chapter questions and further reading sections, this new edition will prove popular with all students of labour ecomics.
