Workers, Collectivism and the Law: Grappling with Democracy provides a historical account of worker democracy beginning with the European guild systems up to the present day in four national legal systems, the UK, US, Sweden and Germany. The modern labour law constellations in these national legal systems are then compared against an Habermasian concept of participatory democracy in order to identify ways by which to strengthen individual employee voice with respect to claims against employers.
