The subjects covered in this new collection are among the most fundamental in the social and humanistic sciences. Although some authors trace the origins of the field of law and economics to certain Chicago School Publications in the early 1960s, in fact this important area of economics has a long, substantial and rich history pre-dating 1960. This collection contains the most important texts in the subject, separately and together demonstrating the vastness and complexity of correlating law and economics, the economy and the legal system and exploring the fundamental social processes and problems arising. This new edition will make available many rare and out-of-print writings by a wide range of authors, including John Bates Clark, John Rogers Commons, Robert Lee Hale, Walton H Hamilton, Calvin B Hoover, Frank H Knight, Gardiner Means, A C Pigou, Pierre Trudeau and Edwin E Witte.
