  3. History of Law and Economics

    History of Law and Economics

    Edited by Henry N. Butler, Jonathan Klick
    Dedicated to the late Henry G. Manne, this authoritative collection surveys the development of law and economics both as a scholarly field and as an educational program. Starting as a niche area, centered primarily at the University of Chicago, law and economics has grown to be the dominant field in US legal scholarship. The influential articles presented in this volume trace that development from the mid-20th century through to today, focusing on both the personalities who laid the groundwork for the field’s success and the intellectual debates that fueled its growth. Together with an original introduction by the editors, this collection is a valuable research tool for academics and students interested in the history of law and economics. Learn More

  4. Recent Developments in the Economics of Information

    Recent Developments in the Economics of Information

    Edited by Cristiano Antonelli
    This volume presents a compilation of key papers chronicling the evolution of the economics of information into the economics of knowledge. It traces the unfolding of the fertile ambiguity and ambivalence of the notion of information with the identification and eventual separation of its two basic, quite distinct meanings: knowledge and signals. It documents the progressive understanding that it is not only necessary to search, screen and understand signals, but also to assess and select them so as to distinguish between true, false and fake ones. The capability to process signals and transform them into actual information stems from the stock of competence and knowledge that individuals and organizations possess and mobilize. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this collection will be an indispensable research tool for economists and scholars alike. Learn More

  8. Recent Developments in the Economics of Religion

    Recent Developments in the Economics of Religion

    Edited by Paul Oslington, Paul S. Williams, Mary Hirschfeld
    The interdisciplinary field of economics and religion has come a long way since 2003 when Edward Elgar published the pioneering volume Economics and Religion. The influence of religious ideas on the birth of economics as a discipline and its rise to cultural dominance is now widely recognized. The largely Protestant discussion has been enriched by Roman Catholic contributions stimulated by recent Papal Encyclicals. The economics of religion has now matured into a respectable subfield of economics and articles on religion regularly appear in top economics journals. Together with an original and insightful introduction to place them in context, this volume makes available the most important recent contributions to the field and will be an invaluable research resource for scholars and academics alike.

  9. Sustainable Development and International Environmental Law

    Sustainable Development and International Environmental Law

    Edited by David Freestone
    At the time of the 1972 Stockholm UN Conference on the Human Environment, the concept of sustainable development and the subject of international environmental law were virtually unknown. Since then, the importance of the subject has burgeoned, as has the number and complexity of the legal instruments that seek to address the threats posed to the planet by humankind. Deforestation, marine pollution, climate change, loss of biodiversity and similar concerns are now familiar – and still unresolved – problems. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this volume collects together for the first time a selection of key articles on the seminal issues of sustainable development and international environmental law, providing the reader with a solid understanding of the breadth and texture of the legal issues involved.

  14. Globalisation and Democracy

    Globalisation and Democracy

    Edited by Jonathan Michie
    There could hardly be a more appropriate time in world history to be revisiting the issues of globalisation and democracy. After almost two centuries of what might be regarded as globalisation in the current usage of the term, it has fallen into disrepute. Voters have used the ballot box to reject both the concept of globalisation and the mainstream parties that promoted it. The UK voted to leave the EU, in the 2016 ‘Brexit’ referendum, and the US elected Donald Trump as President. This collection brings together the key writings on globalisation and democracy exploring the progression of globalisation as well as themes such as employment, international trade, technology and the environment amongst other important issues. This collection provides both scholarly and lay readers an opportunity to analyse how globalisation has impacted the world we live in today. Learn More

  18. China and the Global Economy

    China and the Global Economy

    Edited by Shahid Yusuf
    China’s global economic footprint is large and growing. In recent years, China has contributed a third or more to the growth of the global economy following its meteoric rise starting in the 1980s and gathering momentum in the 1990s. China has convincingly demonstrated the efficacy of investment and export-led growth as a model of development and has achieved economic stardom using a mix of industrial, trade and exchange rate policies within the framework of a gradually reforming socialist market economy. The chapters in this volume written by prominent China scholars and economists as well as an original introduction by a world-leading expert, explore China’s economy. This collection will be an invaluable resource for China watchers and to researchers, students and policymakers interested in learning from East Asia’s development, understanding how China transformed its economy and wondering as to how China might come to grips with the challenges ahead.
