9780226238036: Law and Public Choice: A Critical Introduction

In Law and Public Choice, Daniel Farber and Philip Frickey present a remarkably rich
and accessible introduction to the driving principles of public choice. In this, the first
systematic look at the implications of social choice for legal doctrine, Farber and Frickey
carefully review both the empirical and theoretical literature about interest group influence and provide a nonmathematical introduction to formal models of legislative action. Ideal for course use, this volume offers a balanced and perceptive analysis and critique of an approach which, within limits, can illuminate the dynamics of government decision-making.

Law and Public Choice is a most valuable contribution to the burgeoning literature. It
should be of great interest to lawyers, political scientists, and all others interested in issues at the intersection of government and law.”—Cass R. Sunstein, University of Chicago Law
School

From the Back Cover:

The focus of public law is legislation. Constitutional law studies the limits on legislative power; administrative law studies how statutes are implemented by agencies; fields like discrimination law and environmental law focus on how to apply particular federal statutes. Yet, even though legislation is central to public law, legal scholars have only recently begun to devote serious attention to the legislative process. This book is intended to help fill that gap, by considering how some of the 'new learning' from the social sciences can illuminate issues of public law.

About the Author:

Daniel A. Farber is the Henry J. Fletcher Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota. Philip P. Frickey is professor of law at the University of Minnesota.
