A monograph starts with a short introduction in which professor Wiesława Kozek wrote, ‘this book formed for a long time. Probably it was too long…’ Having read this book, I came to a conclusion that it might be an asset that Prof Kozek wrote this book without haste thus she wrote a systematic monograph which synthesizes two decades of the Polish Labour Market since its inception through the phase of institutionalisation till a firmly established institution of the labour market in Poland. Consequently, the outcome is an encyclopaedic study presenting in details intricate issues which concern not only the labour market, but other sociological aspects of labour relations. Due to the fact that a diachronic aspect is strongly emphasized in the monograph, the book became the first comprehensive history of development of the labour market in Poland after 1989.
