Law and economics
"In the Fifth Edition of this best-selling text, Cooter and Ulen provide a clear introduction to economic concepts as they apply to five core areas of law: property, contracts, torts, the legal process, and crime. The authors offer new insights into the relationship between law and economics and demonstrate how microeconomic theory can be used to critically evaluate public policy."--BOOK JACKET.
