Critical Acclaim
‘In the context of the Elgar reference collection, a remarkable compendium of law and economics has just appeared in three volumes collecting all the requisite articles that, from the point of view of a scholar trained in the American law and economics tradition, would be relevant to be considered. . . . I consider this a very important contribution to the tool shed of the law and economics practitioner.’
– Jürgen Backhaus, European Journal of Law and Economics

‘This book is a useful addition to the literature on legal economics. . . . It deserves to be a required reading for a foundations course in legal studies and public policy analysis.’
– M. Ahsan Habib, Bimonthly Review of Law Books
