‘The text as a whole is comprehensive and the analysis is very clear and precise. Readers will find the content interesting, including recent developments in law and economics; this book is a “must have” for academics and practitioners in law and economics. . . Each article features a well-written reference that is beneficial to readers particularly when the article refers to a particular theory that is difficult to comprehend in the first instance. . . this Handbook is clearly presented and well researched. The articles are comprehensive in nature and closely tied to each other. Therefore it is undoubtedly invaluable to academics, researchers and students who are interested in economics and corporate law in the United States as well as comparative law studies.’
