'A superb book notable for its effective synthesis of quantitative, qualitative, historical, and theoretical approaches. Livingstone explores an issue of vital importance: the growing disjunction between education and paid work in advanced industrial economies.' (Beverley H. Burris, U... niversity of New Mexico)
From Research and Reference Book News. . . 'In the new introduction to the award-winning 1999 edition, a Canadian scholar notes that while research on underemployment has increased since then, preoccupation with statistics still emphasizes limited dimensions of the problem of under-utilization of capabilities. Drawing on survey and case study research in advanced economies, Livingstone (U. of Toronto) analyzes various theories (e.g., human capital) as limited in explaining the education-jobs gap. He does support a general conflict theory identifying the highest underemployment with the least powerful social groups.'
