Editorial Reviews


Aligica and Boettke’s book provides a systematic account of the roots and contributions of the Bloomington School, one of the most insightful research programs in institutional analysis, whose results are more pertinent than ever on the face of the current drive for statist solutions to the economic crisis. Benito Arruñada, Pompeu Fabra University, Spain

Paul Aligica and Peter Boettke have done an outstanding job of describing the spirit and the reality of several decades of theoretical and empirical research on institutional analysis.  They have successfully captured how words express ideas and the language of human development.  Generations of future scholars will appreciate reading this book! Elinor Ostrom and Vincent Ostrom, Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis, Indiana University, USA


This book is a marvellous piece of work on the nature of social sciences, the disciplinary boundaries between economics, political science and sociology, and the relationship between theory and practice in contemporary research. Filippo Sabetti, McGill University, USA
