Definitely a great read for anyone making a transition into government and politics. This text would serve many young students who choose to read it and participate in the lawmaking process well

Goes over essential concepts in a clear and concise way. Even handed with an open mind towards multiple approaches and gives examples for these approaches.

This little book will make a novice pretty quickly into a little bit of an expert. I like it better than the less clear and more scattered business law texts (on this particular sub-area) I've typically been using in college teaching.

Format: Paperback
This book is a gem. The authors have written a concise treatise on regulation that provides an education in about 100 pages. Short but hardly lightweight, the book's economy of language generates a pithy treatment that aptly portrays the landscape of the theory and practice of regulation. The authors clearly know the territory inside out, and the beauty lies in the explanation, which is simple but never simplistic. They speak with experience but also a genuinely critical eye, which is illuminating and refreshing. Start here for a working conceptual framework and a starting point for investigating the field in any number of directions. Also a great resource to which to refer your students - they'll probably actually read it.
