The prize is awarded every two years for Princeton Ph.D. dissertations, completed within the last six years, judged to have made outstanding contributions to labor economics. The prize commemorates Al Rees's great contributions to labor economics at Princeton as a scholar, teacher, mentor, colleague, and friend.
Since 1949 the Industrial Relations Section at Princeton has issued an annual list of "Noteworthy Books in Industrial Relations and Labor Economics". These books are selected each spring by the associates of the Industrial Relations Section from among the many dozens published during the previous year in the areas of Industrial Relations, Human Resource Management, and Labor Economics. The list includes eminent scholarly works as well as significant new books of interest to a wider audience of practitioners and general readers.
Selected References is an annotated bibliography produced by the library on current interest topics in industrial relations. Once issued semiannually, Selected References became an annual publication as of July 2014. The July issue features noteworthy books in industrial relations, including the winners of the Richard A. Lester Award and The William G. Bowen Award. Issues are available electronically through this site or upon request.
