STORY WORTH TELLING
Anil Verma, professor and director of the Centre for Industrial Relations & Human Resources and Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, said: "Orville Taylor documents a century of labour history in Jamaica as only he can. This story needs telling, not only for its historical significance, but also to provoke debate over the future of labour policy. It should be an essential reading for all policymakers, researchers and students who strive to create a more prosperous Jamaica through better labour policy."
Industrial relations consultant Novar P. McDonald also lauded Taylor for his outstanding work.
"Taylor's extensive research work enabled him to examine every aspect of Jamaica's
socio-economic and socio-political experience. This work will make an important contribution Ö in a field of endeavour which is so integrally linked to the everyday experiences of the Jamaican worker. An impressive addition to the existing inadequate body of knowledge for this field. The quality of the research and use of the information gleaned sets this book apart from anything else that I have read during my over 50 years in the areas of endeavour which it covers.
