The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and the Law

Overview

Macmillan's unrivalled strength as an economics publisher has twice been confirmed in recent years: in 1987 with the appearance of the four volumes of the widely acclaimed The New Palgrave: A Dictionary of Economics , and in 1992 with the appearance of the three volumes of the prize winning The New Palgrave Dictionary of Money and Finance. A great deal of economics is in fact about law - the functioning of markets, property rights and their enforcement, financial obligations and so on. Yet these legal aspects and problems are almost never addressed in the academic study of economics. At the same time a great deal of law, an increasing proportion of litigation for example, is about economics, and yet the drafting and administration of laws often ignore economic principle. The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and the Law is uniquely placed by the quality, breadth and depth of its coverage to address this need for building bridges. Drawn from the ranks of academics and professional lawyers and economists in eight countries, the 340 contributors include the leading exponents of their specialities. Among them are Nobel laureates in economics and eminent legal scholars. The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics and the Law will become a benchmark for reference of the highest quality.

Reviews

'This three volume dictionary is a work of immense organisation and scholarship. Although ostensibly about the relationship between law and economics, the dictionary's ambit is far wider...As would be expected with such a distinguished list of contributors, the quality of the entries is first class. The coverage of the topics is staggeringly broad.' - The Solicitor's Journal
