  2. Economics of Constitutional Law

    Economics of Constitutional Law

    Edited by Richard A. Epstein
    In this thought-provoking collection, Professor Epstein brings together the leading articles which explore the economic approach to the two major issues of constitutionalism. The first volume deals with structural protections that are afforded by the separation of powers, the use of checks and balances, and the institutions of federalism. The second volume deals with the protection of individual rights in connection with property, speech, religion, due process and equality. Both volumes focus on the extent to which assumptions about self-interest and human nature influence the choice of social institutions. They offer extensive comparisons between the classical liberal and social democratic views of constitutional law. Professor Epstein’s lengthy and careful introduction seeks to weave together the diverse approaches to constitutional law exhibited in these volumes. Learn More

  17. Regions and Regionalism in Europe

    Regions and Regionalism in Europe

    Edited by Michael Keating
    The last half century has seen the rise across Europe of a new intermediate level of government and politics, usually referred to as a region. However the term ‘region’ means many different things and can be approached from many different angles – geographical, historical, cultural, social, economic and political. Although it is in Europe that regionalism as a multiform phenomenon has developed furthest, the European experience resonates in other parts of the world, where some of these elements also exist. In this volume, Michael Keating has selected some of the most significant previously published articles which provide a comprehensive overview of past and current thinking on this subject. Learn More

The first three parts of the book deal respectively with these three fundamental dimensions of inquiry. The fourth part of the book examines the use of economic analysis in contemporary environmental policy. Learn More
