`Over the past half century, the law and economics movement has profoundly influenced the foundations of intellectual thought about tort law. In the Economics of Tort Law, Professor Alan Sykes has collected and edited a sparkling array of contributions to this literature, which clearly indicates both the depth and the breadth of this important interdisciplinary enterprise.' -- Robert L. Rabin, Stanford Law School, US
