Professor emeritus at Osgoode Hall Law School and former president of Toronto's York University, Harry W. Arthurs is one of the world's most widely respected scholars, educators, and policy makers. His enormous academic and institutional productivity has extended to administrative and labour law, legal pluralism and legal theory, and legal education.
Bringing together scholars of law, history, and political economy, The Daunting Enterprise of the Law applies the framework of Arthurs's extraordinary scholarship to a series of themes running through current legal, economic, and political thought. Contributors from around the globe engage with Arthurs's work in several fields and sub-fields and consider the past and future of industrial democracy, globalization, labour law, legal education, and legal theory in the twenty-first century. Through the process of surveying, evaluating, and reflecting upon Arthurs's ideas and intellectual contributions, they further advance the reader's understanding of labour law and industrial relations.
Remarkable in breadth and scope, The Daunting Enterprise of Law is both a celebration of Arthurs's institutional achievements and policy leadership and an important contribution to contemporary scholarship.

"The overall contribution of the volume flows from several particular aspects of what the editors have achieved in assembling the papers in this collection: variously, there is an important element of assessing the evolution of thought in labour law, an element of exploring and challenging the current state of our understanding of the key issues and developments in the field, and an element of enhancing our understanding of the connections between law and policy." Richard Chaykowski, Queen's University

"A book that assembles Harry Arthurs's thoughts over many decades is long overdue. Nobody writes like Harry, with his razor-sharp insights, astonishing elegance, and humour. Is there an 'Arthursian' school of thought? If so, this book captures it." Daphne
