It is indeed the case that the wealth of the analysis and reflection provided in this book makes it extremely difficult to provide an accurate account of all the issues contained within it ... [The editors] put forward a number of proposals that would be useful for the European institutions to consider. -- Michel Theys * Bulletin Quotidien Europe *
The contributions embedded in the book come from an international set of authors and offer very detailed, insightful and interesting analyses ... the book fulfils its purpose to provide a comparative overview on the role of contingent work in the current labour market. -- Marco Biasi, University of Milan * European Journal of Social Security *
