New Book on Comparative Law and Economics

I am pleased to announce the publication of a new edited volume, Comparative Law and Economics (Theodore Eisenberg & Giovanni B. Ramello eds., Edward Elgar Publishing 2016).  I contributed a chapter titled A Comparative Law and Economics Analysis of Damages for Patent Infringement.  Other contributors of chapters devoted to IP law are Peter Yu (The Comparative Economics of International Intellectual Property Agreements), Wendy Gordon (Copyright and Tort as Mirror Models:  On Not Mistaking for the Right Hand What the Left Hand Is Doing), and Ivan Paak Liang Png & Qiu-Hong Wang (Copyright Law and the Supply of Creative Work:  Evidence from the Movies).  Yun-chien Chang and Henry Smith also contributed a chapter titled Structure and Style in Comparative Property Law.

Here is a link to further information, and here is the book description:
Contemporary law and economics has greatly expanded its scope of inquiry as well as its sphere of influence. By focussing specifically on a comparative approach, this Handbook offers new insights for developing current law and economics research. It also provides stimuli for further research, exploring the idea that the comparative method offers a valuable way to enrich law and economics scholarship.
With contributions from leading scholars from around the world, the Handbook sets the context by examining the past, present and future of comparative law and economics before addressing this approach to specific issues within the fields of intellectual property, competition, contracts, torts, judicial behaviour, tax, property law, energy markets, regulation and environmental agreements.
This topical Handbook will be of great interest and value to scholars and postgraduate students of law and economics, looking for new directions in their research. It will also be a useful reference to policymakers and those working at an institutional level.
