The International Library of Critical Writings in Economics Series No. 144
Public procurement is big business. International organisations and governments at national, regional, state and city levels are major buyers of goods and services. However, public procurement is a relatively under-researched and new discipline, which, uniquely, brings together contributions from the fields of economics and law. This two-volume set presents some of the major contributions in the field. It includes papers on outsourcing versus internal provision; public procurement and the role of competition and transparency; corruption; public procurement as a tool of industrial, social and environmental policy; public procurement as a trade barrier and its regulation under international trade agreements; and enforcing public procurement rules.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'The editors have produced an excellent contribution to the academic literature of public procurement.' -- Christopher Bovis, Common Market Law Review 'The collection opens with a good summary of both parts and gives a useful overview of the main themes of the collection, which enables the reader to dip in and out effectively.' -- Rosemary Boyle, The Cambridge Law Journal 'For the student needing to become ridiculously well-read in the subject this is likely to be a useful source of secondary research.' -- Andy Davies, Supply Management
