Book Description

8 Sep 2012 Oxford Handbooks in Business and Management
Regulation is often thought of as an activity that restricts behaviour and prevents the occurrence of certain undesirable activities, but the influence of regulation can also be enabling or facilitative, as when a market could potentially be chaotic if uncontrolled. This Handbook provides a clear and authoritative discussion of the major trends and issues in regulation over the last thirty years, together with an outline of prospective developments. It brings together contributions from leading scholars from a range of disciplines and countries.

Each chapter offers a broad overview of key current issues and provides an analysis of different perspectives on those issues. Experiences in different jurisdictions and insights from various disciplines are drawn upon, and particular attention is paid to the challenges that are encountered when specific approaches are applied in practice. Contributors develop their own distinctive arguments relating to the central issues in regulation and apply scholarly rigour and clear writing to matters of high policy-relevance. The essays are original, accessible, and agenda-setting, and the Handbook will be essential reading both to students and researchers and to with regulatory and regulated professionals.

This is a must-read for anyone interested in (getting an introduction to) regulation and its many faces. The book brings together articles from various backgrounds and provides a broad overview of some of the central issues in regulation, both from an economics and a law perspective. At that same time, each of the articles has enough depth to be worth a read even for those more versed in this area. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this book 2 May 2013
By Roman Herbst - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good introduction to regulation and the various views around how it applies and can apply to policy situations. The strength of the book is that it is written by a variety of authors, all knowledgable in their respective fields. A weakness, however, is the flip side of the previous statement: some writers are better at expressing themselves and their ideas than other contributors.

Overall though, I recommend this book
