Hi Cyrus, welcome to the Ope-l. The title of the book you co-edited interests
me. Would you please send us the table of contents, even if briefly stated.
Thank you,

P.S. I have been thinking about how a marxian book on labor economics would
look like and came to the following points

I. Inclusion
1. exploitation
2. forms of wages and exploitation

II. Exclusion
3. technological change and exclusion (industrial reserve army)
4. exclusion and self-employment
5. historicam transformation in the composition of the resenve army

IV. labor process and forms of control
6. technological change, labor process and forms of control over labor

V. Differentiation
7. competition and wage differentials
8. wage differentials and different rates of exploitation

I would like to hear from our colleagues what they think would compose a table
of contents of a book on labor economics.
