Book description

From a historical perspective, 'law and economics' constituted one of the most influential developments in legal scholarship in the twentieth century; the discipline remains today one of the dominant perspectives on the law, generating a tremendous quantity of new research and discussion. Unfortunately, one consequence of applying the analytical methods of one highly technical field to the historically layered substance of another has been the accumulation of considerable technical overhead, requiring fluency in both the language of economics and the language of the law. Further complicating matters, the field of law and economics has sometimes developed independently, creating new terms, while recasting others from their original economic or legal meanings. In this dictionary of law and economics, Francesco Parisi provides a comprehensive and concise guide to the language and key concepts underlying this fecund interdisciplinary tradition. The first reference work of its kind, it will prove to be an invaluable resource for professionals, students and scholars.


'Professor Francesco Parisi, a leading, and extremely prolific law and economics scholar, benefits both the legal and economic communities with this comprehensive and very timely law and economics dictionary. It is not only law and economics scholars who should have this magnificent volume on their shelves, but also lawyers and economists, both academicians and practitioners, who wish to have … better access to that important field.'
