The Encyclopedia of Law and Economics is a monumental reference work that surveys the entire literature on law and economics in over 3,000 pages. The entries consist of two elements: a review of the literature written by an authority in the field and a bibliography which covers most of the published material in the particular area. The reviews are written in an accessible style which will be suitable for non-specialists, such as lawyers, judges, politicians and students as well as scholars of law and economics. This authoritative Encyclopedia will rapidly become established as a leading bibliographic and reference source in law and economics.
