Fit for Management? How Good Health Helps Your Career Martin Ljunge

There is a well-known positive association between job status and health. The relationship has been taken as evidence of how the work environment shapes health. But newly published research from the Research Institute of Industrial Economics (IFN) and the London School of Economics (LSE) establishes an effect in the opposite direction. It finds that better health increases the likelihood of being a supervisor, as well as having more autonomy and more influence at the workplace.

The European Union and the Return of the Nation State

This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
