This book is a comprehensive study of unemployment experiences in Europe, both in terms of its thematic variety and the number of countries included. The results are based on representative micro data comparable between all countries studied. The authors make efficient use of this information using state of the art statistical methodology. There is no doubt that this study advances our understanding of the social regulation of unemployment
