Abstract

A half century ago, an adventurous project was launched, a comprehensive encyclopedia of all of comparative law, in seventeen volumes. Volume XV was to deal with Labor Law. Between 1975 and 2010, eleven of its projected sixteen chapters appeared. The volume as a whole has now been published with an Introduction supplied by Matthew Finkin of the University of Illinois. This introductory chapter surveys the labor issues that emerged and were dealt with from pre-industrial times to the post-industrial present. It essays some thoughts on the process and direction of change.
