More Information
This authoritative and comprehensive reference work introduces the reader to the major concepts and leading contributors in the field of law and economics.

The Companion features accessible, informative and provocative entries on all the significant areas and breaks new ground by bringing together widely dispersed but theoretically congruent ideas for the first time. An important feature of the book is the inclusion of 26 scholarly biographies of the founding fathers of law and economics.

As a major source of reference on law and economics, the Companion will be welcomed by both students and teachers in law and economics, and will also have relevance for industrial economists and historians of economic thought.
Critical Acclaim
‘Backhaus’s book is a good companion.’
– Pablo Salvador Coderch, Indret

‘A most valuable collection of papers serving to provide the reader both with an overview of some key areas in law and economics and with a biographical introduction to the work of some important, if also neglected, sources of scholarship in the discipline.’
– Anthony Ogus, Professor Emeritus, University of Manchester, UK and Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
