The Rights of Labor

Book - 1980
Rate this:
Should workers own the capital their own labour produces? If they should, what kinds of justifications are there not only philosophically and ethically, but in the legal tradition as well? The authors draw on the fields of jurisprudence, political science, and economic and social history to explain the rise of principles of ownership rights.

′This is a concise, intelligent survey study of labor rights that belongs in the library of everyone with a serious interest in the subject. It is clearly written, interdisciplinary in range, and conscientiously researched...Abrahamsson and Brostrom have written a most valuable and informative book. As a non-rhetorical, succinct and clearly written tour of the principal theoretical positions on labor rights in the capitalist era, their work is perhaps the best that has yet been written.′ -- Journal of Business Ethics 2, 1983
