This book is suitable for graduates taking courses in labour economics which use a search approach. The economics of search has become a part of the standard graduate curriculum and deals with the costs and benefits to individual workers - either employed or unemployed - of seeking a job with the highest possible pay. This book surveys the empirical literature on the economics of search in a systematic manner.
Readership: Postgraduate students of economics.
Theresa J. Devine, Assistant Professor of Economics, Penn State University, and Nicolas M. Kiefer, Professor of Economics, Cornell University
"`The authors are acquainted with a huge literature. There is a danger, in an area that has experienced such rapid growth ... that some work will be lost or ignored. The authors have reduced the chances of this, and this book should encourage scholars in many countries to make further contributions.'
