Ships from and sold by Books Mela. I thoroughly enjoyed this book because Posner does an incredible job at expressing complex ideas in a manner that the average person can understand. Something I was not aware of when I purchased this was how thick and heavy it is. It is a book you would want to take notes from or outline, not necessarily carry to class every day.

Economic Analysis of Law 8e (Aspen Casebooks). Although the economic theories used by Posner are for the most part sound, nevertheless, he lacks a more realistic approach to the problems presented in this book. For example, in the real world we CANNOT ignore transaction costs in all cases. Also, not all laypeople know the law as well as Mr. Posner.

Two new chapters, one on intellectual property, one on international and comparative law, both exploding fields of great importance. Revised to be clearer and less technical. More eclectic, reflecting recent criticisms of "rational choice" theory, in particular the need to supplement it with insights from psychology. Greater attention paid to judicial behavior, realistically modeled and explained in economic terms.

Bought this for a law and econ class in law school - one that supposedly didn't require an econ background. This book belies that claim. I started reading and spent more time looking up econ terms and phrases than I actually did reading. I'm not sure this book has much value for the average layperson, but perhaps it gets better and clearer after the introduction and first few chapters - I dropped the class and returned the book before I got there. I love Posner's holdings when he writes for the court - but this book was awfully dense.

Prior to 1960, legal scholars invoked economics only in a handful of specialized contexts -- mostly antitrust and taxation. But it was not generally thought that economic science had much of anything useful to say about the law generally.

Then, in the early 1960s, Guido Calabresi and Ronald Coase published a couple of papers that a lot of people found pretty darned interesting.

Richard Posner was one of those people. Within about a decade thereafter, he had written a massive treatise-textbook that attempted to apply (Chicago-school) economic insights to almost the entirety of the law, in part relying on Calabresi's insights on risk allocation and Coase's famous theorem about what happens in a world with no transaction costs.

That treatise-textbook is now in its fifth edition, and you're looking at the Amazon page for it. It would be hard to name a more influential work in the field of law and economics -- and even today, as Posner himself will gladly tell you, although there are a few other _textbooks_ on the topic, there are still no other _treatises_.

Posner's scope is breathtaking. Not content to limit himself to the usual array of legal topics (property, torts, contracts, criminal law, legal procedure, and so forth), he also manages to devote portions of his text to, e.g., sex and marriage, surrogate motherhood, prostitution, homosexuality, and a host of other controversial and/or marginal topics you don't typically encounter in an economics text.

The typical reader will probably not find him altogether persuasive on these topics. In fact, if you're anything like me, you'll probably wind up shaking your head in sheer wonderment: how is it possible for someone to be so brilliantly incisive on one page and so infuriatingly obtuse on the next?

But don't assume Posner is the one who's wrong. Don't misunderstand me; I think he _is_ sometimes the one who's wrong. But even then, his arguments are something to be reckoned with, not to be easily dismissed. (Nor is he _ever_ simply "obtuse.")

For the most part I think the book is a success in its more modest aim. In the fifth edition, Posner ends his opening chapter with a short reply to critics of the law and economics movement; with much of what he has to say here I can wholeheartedly agree. His work should, as he notes, be of _some_ interest to anyone who thinks Kaldor-Hicks efficiency/potential Pareto improvement plays any role whatsoever in setting policies. (I don't personally think it plays or should play much role at all, but I can agree with the point as Posner has stated it.) And Posner notes, quite unobjectionably, that the entire field should not be rejected merely because one does not accept the views of its most aggressive exponents.

But make no mistake, Posner _is_ one of its most aggressive exponents, and the apparent modesty of his aims is somewhat disingenuous: he is not merely trying to find out what economics can say about the law but to tell us that it can say quite a lot indeed. And it is here that I find him ultimately unconvincing on a number of points.

(To take one well-known example, I don't think Posner's discussion of the famous "Hand formula" captures what Judge Billings Learned Hand meant by it, and at any rate the formula is not as useful as Posner seems to think it is. There is some good discussion of the Hand formula by Richard Wright in _Philosophical Foundations of Tort Law_, and in general Posner has been roundly and in some respects successfully criticized by a wide range of scholars from Ronald Dworkin to Gary Schwartz.)

But there is no getting around this massive work, and it absolutely cannot be lightly dismissed. On the contrary, the thing bristles with fine insights and obviously massive legal and economic erudition; most of it will repay close reading even for the reader who ends up disagreeing. If you have any interest in the field of law and economics, you really ought to read this book _sometime_.

this is one of the most original and groundbreaking pieces of legal literature in history...Posner, one of the founders of the "chicago school" of law & economics applies the principles of ecomonics to analyze the entrire legal system from basic rules to underlying principles

Economic Analysis of Law is beyond critics. It's a classic in the literature of Law and Economics, a true required reading. It combines a large perspective of subjects in Law and Economics with the right level of depth.
Whitebinder
This book is for law school or same grade school text book. This book entails everything happended in law and economics. So if you have any interest law and economics, it will be a great experience to know this book, but if not , this will be some bored to kill job.
Although the economic theories used by Posner are for the most part sound, nevertheless, he lacks a more realistic approach to the problems presented in this book. For example, in the real world we CANNOT ignore transaction costs in all cases. Also, not all laypeople know the law as well as Mr. Posner. Overall, I do recommend reading this book, it will undoubtly stimulate your mind!
