So far this term, we’ve already seen two new publications by College members.
Details are below. As always, you can view the latest books by Nuffield College Members on our devoted webpage.
Warden Stephen Nickell published Combatting Unemployment (OUP) with Richard Layard.
“Why is unemployment higher in some countries than others? Why does it fluctuate between decades? Why are some people at greater risk than others? Layard and Nickell have worked on these issues for thirty years. Their famous model, first published in 1986, is now used throughout the world. It asserts that unemployment must be high enough to reduce the real wages for which workers settle to the level justified by productivity.”
Associate Member Sir Roderick Floud wrote The Changing Body: Health, Nutrition, and Human Development in the Western World since 1700 (CUP) with Robert W. Fogel, Bernard Harris and Sok Chul Hong.
“This fascinating and groundbreaking book presents an accessible introduction to the field of anthropometric history, surveying the causes and consequences of changes in health and mortality, diet and the disease environment in Europe and the United States since 1700.”
