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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This remarkable volume shows off the eclectic potential of the comparative law and economics brand. It is comparative not only in assembling scholars from around the world and in zipping from Taiwanese civil disputes to international high courts to drug regulators for case studies, but most importantly in highlighting an empirical methodology that welcomes a range of complementary approaches that broadens the core economic analysis of law. It's a fascinating tour across boundaries.' -- Stewart J. Schwab, Cornell Law School, US
`To date, economic analysis has not realized its enormous potential for illuminating issues of comparative law. The Research Handbook in Comparative Law and Economics fills that gap. Edited by eminent scholars in the field, this book demonstrates the power of economic methodology to illuminate theoretical and policy-oriented issues across many legal systems. It should be essential reading for anyone interested in cutting edge research in the fields of economic analysis and comparative law.' -- Geoffrey Miller, New York University, Law School, US
