  1. Economics of Legal History

    Economics of Legal History

    Edited by Daniel Klerman
    Generations of law and economics scholars have been fascinated by history, seeing in its institutions and laws a vast database for illustrating their theories. Equally, historians have seen economic analysis as a helpful tool with which to analyze legal institutions. As a result a vibrant field has emerged in which people trained in law, economics, history and political science have all made significant contributions. This volume brings together the most important works examining legal history from an economic perspective. An original introduction by the editor provides a useful roadmap to the field. Learn More

  2. Trade in Asia

    Trade in Asia

    Edited by Richard Pomfret
    This comprehensive collection brings together contributions that have increased our understanding of trade in Asia. Early debates centered on the advantages and disadvantages of joining the global economy as exporters to the high-income countries, while trade within Asia was of minor importance. Increasingly, however, trade spilled across Asian borders, and as production chains became more complex attention has shifted towards the organization of international trade within Asia and specifically the operation of global or regional value chains. An original Introduction by the editor reviews the wider literature, in which key contributions often appeared in regional publications, working papers or other outlets that may be hard to access.

With advances in globalization, technology and regional integration, the issue of adapting tax systems in developing countries to new economic environments is becoming ever more pressing. Learn More

    Environmental Regulation

    Edited by John McEldowney, Sharron McEldowney
    Featuring an original introduction by the editors, this important collection of essays explores the main issues surrounding the regulation of the environment.

In the USA it is more formalised, juridical, adversarial and formally dependent upon legal rules. The articles highlight the fact that despite differences in the UK and the USA's regulatory styles, environmental regulation today has much in common with both traditions. Learn More
