“Allan Bogg is a genius. His recent book The Democratic Aspects of Trade Union Recognition is a tour de force of 20th-century British industrial relations history, theory and employment law jurisprudence.” – Tim Ayres,
Journal of Industrial Relations, Volume 53, No. 5
“Bogg's finely structured and nicely written book makes an important contribution to labour law scholarship by providing a coherent and sustained normative justification for active state support for trade union recognition, a list of the key elements of what this support should look like, and a critical analysis of the interpretation and application of the UK statutory recognition procedure contained in Schedule A1 of the Trade Union and Labour Regulations ... Act 1992.
The Democratic Aspects of Trade Union Recognition makes a valuable contribution to labour law scholarship by emphasizing the important role that trade unions and collective bargaining play in furthering core values such as freedom as non-domination and political equality in democratic societies.” – Judy Fudge,
