Normes sociales, droit du travail et mondialisation by Marie-Ange Moreau offers nuanced analysis of the confrontations and changes in social regulation under globalization. It engages with the abundant literature on the subject in French and English and crosses continental solitudes to investigate regulation at different governance levels in Europe, North America, and selected countries in the South. The breadth of analysis is breathtaking. This short book note cannot capture that breadth. It simply teases out the following three themes central to the work: (1) Soft Law and the Importance of Time, (2) Transnational Regulation and Regional Constructs, and (3) The Persisting Importance of the International.
