Research Handbook on Patent Law and Theory, Second Edition

I recently received a copy of a new edited volume, titled Research Handbook on Patent Law and Theory:  Second Edition (Toshiko Takenaka ed., Edward Elgar Publishing 2019).  Here is a link to Elgar's webpage for the book, and below is the table of contents.  I mention it here because three of the chapters focus on patent enforcement:  Tilman Müller-Stoy's chapter titled Patent enforcement in Germany, Christoph Rademacher's chapter titled The theory and practice of patent damages in Japan and the US;  explaining the differences that remain; and Rochelle C. Dreyfuss's chapter titled Resolving patent disputes in a global economy.  I may publish a follow-up post on some or all of these individual chapters.
