This is an authoritative collection on comparative law and economics, a new research field in which differences among legal systems are analysed using an economic methodology. Comparative law and economics brings comparative law to a higher scientific level, and enriches traditional comparative economics, in which insufficient attention has been paid to legal environments. This comprehensive three-volume collection covers the following subjects: general theories and general historical perspectives, regulatory competition and legal transplants, legal systems and economic growth, property, tort law and restitution, contracts and consumer protection, corporate law and organizations, and procedural law. Comparative Law and Economics will be an indispensable reference source for those with an interest in these fields.

`This is an extremely fine, wide-ranging anthology of essays applying economic analysis to comparative law. Comparative law - the comparison of the world's extraordinarily diverse legal systems - with special reference to the legal challenges facing developing nations offers an enormous and underexplored field for the application of economics. These essays demonstrate the promise of the economic approach and will go far to stimulate further research, thinking, and reform.' -- Richard A. Posner, United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and University of Chicago Law School, US
