In recent years, regulation has emerged as one of the most distinct and important fields of study in the social sciences, both for policy-makers and for scholars who require a theoretical framework that can be applied to any social sector. This timely textbook provides a conceptual map of the field and an accessible and critical introduction to the subject. Morgan and Yeung set out a diverse and stimulating selection of materials, primarily extracts from books or journal articles, and give them context with a comprehensive and critical commentary. The book adopts an interdisciplinary approach but emphasises throughout the role of law in its broader social and political context. This clearly structured, academically rigorous title, with a contextualised perspective, is intended primarily as a teaching resource for the student coming to regulation for the first time, but should also be of interest to those more familiar with the subject. The table of contents is attached.
