This book examines the evolution of the contract of employment in Britain through an investigation of changes in its juridical form during and since the industrial revolution. The initial conditions of industrialization and the subsequent growth of a particular type of welfare state have decisively shaped the evolutionary path of British labour and social security law.

The implications of this historical perspective for modern conceptualizations of the labour market, and in particular for current proposals to move 'beyond' the employment model, are addressed.

Subjects:
Employment Law, Legal History
Contents:
1. Labour markets and legal evolution
2. The origins of the contract of employment
3. The duty to work
4. Collective bargaining and social legislation
5. Capabilities, competition, and rights;
