Editorial Reviews

Review

“This edition represents a massive rewriting and reorganization for which the authors should be commended. They have taken an already fine book and made it, I think, considerably better. It is, in short, the best industrial organization text for its level.”
John Kwoka, Northeastern University

“I congratulate the authors on a job well done. The coverage of topics is complete and up to date, with many detailed examples that make these topics real to students.”
Jill McCluskey, Washington State University

“This book strikes the perfect balance between real-world motivation of the various economic phenomena and exposition of formal economic models. This aspect, together with the exercises and complementary online material, has made it my preferred textbook for the undergraduate course.”
Christos Genakos, Selwyn College

From the Back Cover

This bestselling textbook, now in its fourth edition, uniquely uses the tools of game theory, information economics, contracting issues, and practical examples to examine multiple facets of industrial organization. New to this edition are 14 optional econometric studies that provide an applied, more challenging option for instructors and students. Additional new features convey the vitality and relevance of industrial organization – both in theory and practice.

Key Features:


  • Provides a comprehensive guide to industrial organization in the imperfect market conditions of the real world
  • Includes the most current research on real business behavior and public policy
  • Features stronger coverage of information economics, contracting issues, and game theory than any other IO textbook
  • Explores important econometric issues in 14 optional real-world empirical applications, new to this edition
  • Includes useful derivation and reality checkpoints, including many new to this edition
  • Supported by a website containing an Instructor’s Manual and PowerPoint slides. Visit www.blackwellpublishing.com/pepall for more information

Very clear writing lends to easy self-study or for use in class. Very clear book which, while not providing highlighting or extensive section summaries, is so clear while explaining concepts that this is barely necessary. Had a blast working with this book.

Book in excellent conditions, the retailer is extremely honest and accurate. The book seems new.
As far as the text book is concerned, I wouldn't recommend it, it is not clear at all and it takes too many things for granted, but it was required.

This book contains almost everything in the IO world and is a great source for anybody trying to understand IO theories. The explanations are not too long nor too short and the citations are very helpful (at least for my research).

Format: Hardcover
From its first edition, the authors have succeeded in introducing students to the vastly interesting and complicated world of industrial organization. By supplementing the theory with ample relevant empirical examples, the text is a pleasure to read and serves well for self study too. In its scope and exposition it competes with Carlton, while the updated 4th edition provides a good reason to pick it.
