Anna M. Rappaport, The Journal of PEF a very good resource.

Olivia S. Mitchell, International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans Professor; Executive Director of The Pension Research Council; The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania The Oxford Handbook of Pensions and Retirement Income is sure to become an invaluable reference for researchers and students, actuaries and benefits counselors, corporate and labor-oriented analysts, and indeed all in the pension design and financial services business. Volume contributors are leading authorities who provide a systematic and thorough review of the diverse issues that arise in the structuring, management, regulation, and understanding of public and
private pension systems. Chapters include a diverse set of financial, economic, historical, and institutional perspectives shaping the key institutions on which so many millions rely for financial security around the globe. This book will be a welcome addition to my bookshelf.

Michael J. Clowes, author of The Money Flood: How Pension Funds Revolutionized Investing This is a fascinating and incredibly useful book for anyone interested in the problem of retirement income provision. Its 42 chapters by the leading thinkers and researchers in the subject cover almost every imaginable topic, from the history of retirement plans, through current structures and problems to the future. By producing this book, Clark, Munnell, and Orszag have provided an invaluable resource.

Keith Ambachtsheer, Director, Rotman International Centre for Pension Management, University of Toronto In terms of scale and scope, this is surely the most comprehensive handbook on pensions and retirement ever compiled. This makes it a 'must have' for every serious student of this fascinating field.

Dr. Werner Nussbaum, Legal expert for pension systems, Berne/Seoul Today, there are only few accurate overviews on the actual state of pension issues in an international comparative context. With respect to this fact, The Oxford Handbook of Pension and Retirement Income closes an obvious gap between theoretical concepts and practical experiences using a reader-friendly format. Combining leadership experience with practical background from comparative viewpoints, the authors provide useful insights into the different approaches and
the common goal of pension systems worldwide. Many thanks to the publishers of this exciting oeuvre for an important contribution to modern socio-economic discussions on pension systems.
