Product Description

Review

“This edition represents a massive rewriting and reorganization for which the authors should be commended. They have taken an already fine book and made it, I think, considerably better. It is, in short, the best industrial organization text for its level.” John Kwoka, Northeastern University “I congratulate the authors on a job well done. The coverage of topics is complete and up to date, with many detailed examples that make these topics real to students.” Jill McCluskey, Washington State University “This book strikes the perfect balance between real–world motivation of the various economic phenomena and exposition of formal economic models. This aspect, together with the exercises and complementary online material, has made it my preferred textbook for the undergraduate course.” Christos Genakos, Selwyn College

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very useful introductory text to the field of Industrial Organisation. The text describes the key elements of the topic, such as game theory, oligopolistic competition, market concentation, etc in sufficient detail. The book is very readable, even to someone with a limited economics background, although later sections do become more technical and algebraic. All the topics are well explained, with multiple examples and the book really helps you appreciate the significance and practical relevance of the topics and ideas that are being studied. The only minor disappointment is that occasionally the treatment of game theory within the models can lack the required theoretical riguor, being more applications based than theory. A good game theory book like P.K.Dutta's Strategies & Games would be a useful complement. Strategies and Games: Theory and Practice

Well written and well thought out 5 Feb. 2013
By Patrick G Schupp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very clear writing lends to easy self-study or for use in class. Very clear book which, while not providing highlighting or extensive section summaries, is so clear while explaining concepts that this is barely necessary. Had a blast working with this book.
Book in excellent conditions, the retailer is extremely honest and accurate 11 Oct. 2014
By Hanno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Book in excellent conditions, the retailer is extremely honest and accurate. The book seems new.
As far as the text book is concerned, I wouldn't recommend it, it is not clear at all and it takes too many things for granted, but it was required.
A good IO book 7 Feb. 2014
By Komson Chanprapan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book contains almost everything in the IO world and is a great source for anybody trying to understand IO theories. The explanations are not too long nor too short and the citations are very helpful (at least for my research).

Gentle introduction 23 July 2008
By A reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
From its first edition, the authors have succeeded in introducing students to the vastly interesting and complicated world of industrial organization. By supplementing the theory with ample relevant empirical examples, the text is a pleasure to read and serves well for self study too. In its scope and exposition it competes with Carlton, while the updated 4th edition provides a good reason to pick it.
