"Among the leading analysts in law and economics, Werner Hirsch displays a special interest in the empirical implications of scholarship in this field. For that and many other reasons, his textbook is very welcome."
Praise for this Edition, --GARY T. SCHWARTZ, University of California School of Law, Los Angeles
"Werner Hirsch's book stands alone among law-and-economics texts in its use of empirical data to test and inform economic theorems, and in its broad, non-ideological approach. The Third Edition is an excellent textbook and a real contribution to the field."
--RICHARD H. SANDER, University of California, Los Angeles
"Few schools of thought have had as much of an impact on modern American law as law and economics, and few, if any, works on the subject are as comprehensive and understandable as Professor Hirsch's Law and Economics: An Introductory Analysis, Third Edition. Professor Hirsch collects some of the most important views on law and economics, and combines them with his own impressive understanding, to create a remarkable work that will open new horizons to all who read it."
--ALEX KOZINSKI, U.S. Circuit Judge, Pasadena, California
