‘Innovation has become a vitally important field of study in the modern era. This edited two-volume compilation offers the single best collection of insights that scholars of innovation – including but not limited to intellectual property professors – have to offer about what innovation is, why it is essential to economic growth, and how to foster it. It is a major accomplishment to have brought these insightful works together.’
