Eric A. Posner
This major research review – composed by a leading authority – presents a careful analysis of international law from a rational choice perspective.

Edited by Alessio M. Pacces
In this timely book, the law and economics of corporate governance is approached from various angles. Alessio Pacces shows that perspectives are evolving and that they differ between the economic and the legal standpoint, as well as varying between countries. A group of leading scholars offers their views and provides fresh empirical evidence on existing theories as well as developing new theoretical insights based on empirical puzzles. They all analyse the economics of corporate governance with a view to how it should, or should not, be regulated.
Geoffrey P. Miller

The Founders Betrayed
Timothy P. Roth
Presented as an engaging thought experiment, Politicians, Economists and the Supreme Court at Work examines the metastasizing federal role through two different means: first, as it relates to the increasing concerns of a contemporary nation, and second, the depth to which that nation’s Founders would be appalled by the actions of their successors. Additionally, the book provides a critical appraisal of the burgeoning federal enterprise and the federal government’s ‘on-, off-, and off-off’ budget activities – ultimately answering the question, ‘What would the Founders do?’
Patrick A. McNutt
In this insightful book, Patrick McNutt explores the meaning of law within a political environment, and advances many new ideas and concepts first addressed in his earlier book Law, Economics and Antitrust.
Legal and Economic Perspectives
Edited by François Lévêque and Howard Shelanski
The diverse and excellent set of authors assembled in this book sheds light on the continuing and conflicting calls for deregulation and re-regulation of important industries and informs the ongoing, increasingly global, policy debate over the evolving line between regulation and general competition policy. The purpose of this book is to understand the debate and its policy implications, focusing on the traditionally regulated sectors of telecommunications and energy, and comparing approaches in the European Union and the United States.
Richard A. Epstein
In this thought-provoking research review, Professor Epstein assesses the leading articles which explore the economic approach to the two major issues of constitutionalism.
