'Professor Wittman collects some of the best and most provocative works on law and economics in this one book. An excellent entry point for those who are new to the field, this book is also a terrific resource for those who already know the value of the economic analysis of law. The ideas examined in these pages have power almost everywhere one looks.' Saul Levmore, University of Chicago Law School <!--end-->

'Wittman has condensed many of the classic writings in law and economics to their essence. I wager that many more than students will find this useful.' Aaron Edlin, UC Berkeley School of Law

'Professor Wittman selects truly seminal pieces and puts them into perspective. The commentaries linking the articles should be illuminating for both students and advanced scholars, and are a true contribution to the literature by themselves. The articles have been shortened intelligently, making them much more accessible and highlighting the core arguments. This collection comes very close to being the perfect introduction to law and economics literature.' Gerrit De Geest, Utrecht University, Belgium
