This book serves as a compact introduction to the economic analysis of law and organization. At the same time it covers a broad spectrum of issues. It is aimed at undergraduate economics students who are interested in law and organization, law students who want to know the economic basis for the law, and students in business and public policy schools who want to understand the economic approach to law and organization. The book covers such diverse topics as bankruptcy rules, corporate law, sports rules, the organization of Congress, federalism, intellectual property, crime, accident law, and insurance. Unlike other texts on the economic analysis of law, this text is not organized by legal categories but by economic theory. The purpose of the book is to develop economic intuition and theory to a sufficient degree so that one can apply the ideas to a variety of areas in law and organization.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This text is interesting and valuable, and has many useful things to say about both law and organization from a solid economic perspective. The author is a well-spring of theoretical knowledge, legal cases, examples, and stories, and this serves his teaching purposes well. An excellent textbook.' Professor Avner Ben-Ner, Carlson School of Management, University of Florida
'This is a fascinating textbook. The writing is simple and down to earth, the ideas often complex and worth thinking about - a terrific combination in any book. It takes a fresh and easily readable approach to some familiar topics in law and economics. It should find a wide audience.' Professor Keith Hylton, Boston University Law School
'I think that everyone teaching law and economics will want to buy a copy of this book. The 'bite-sized' chapters are easy to digest and well-directed. Professor Wittman has given us a concise discussion of a wide range of topics. I can guarantee that it will join David Friedman's book as the subject's most popular crib sheets.' Professor Stephen Medema, University of Colorado, Denver
'Donald Wittman has produced a well-written book, which does what often seems impossible, in that it explains economic terms in a thoroughly straightforward manner. ... this is a book that will prove useful to those who want to acquire some very basic economic language in a clear format. For this alone it would be a useful product.' Industrial Relations Journal
