‘The collection is a fantastic one not because it fills a gap in the literature, but rather because it does so for the most part using research of the highest quality … On this basis I am truly confident t suggest that Fitzgerald and Stirling’s book is required reading for anyone interested in works councils at the European Level.’ – Work, Employment and Society, 2005
