    Edited by Hans-W. Micklitz, Rob A.J. Van Gestel, Roger Brownsword
    Contract and Regulation: A Handbook on New Methods of Law Making in Private Law sheds light on the darker side of contracts.

The expert contributors explore modes of governance that do not fit nicely into traditional contract theory, paying special attention to three key examples: governance and codes of conduction, networks and relations, compliance and use.
