An interdisciplinary and contextual discussion of the role of the law that looks at all aspects of regulation, from theories on why regulation occurs through to the problem of enforcement. Despite the broad nature of the topic, aspects are drawn together in a coherent and accessible way. A unique text that deserves to be widely read.
Who is it for? The interdisciplinary approach will appeal to a range of students, from undergraduate and postgraduate law students to those studying a social science topic involving discussion of regulation.
Presentation: "Scholarly yet accessible", as the authors intended; well written, clearly structured with good supplementary materials and comprehensive reading lists at the end of each chapter.
Would you recommend it? Highly recommended.
