About the Authors
  • Empirical Studies in Institutional Change is a collection of nine empirical studies by fourteen scholars. Dealing with issues ranging from the evolution of secure markets in seventeenth-century England to the origins of property rights in airport slots in modern America, the contributors analyze institutions and institutional change. To make the papers accessible to a wide audience, the editors have written an introduction to each study and added three theoretical essays to the volume, including Douglass North's Nobel Prize address, that reflect their collective views as to the present and future status of institutional analysis.

    • Brings together, from various sources, empirical studies that reveal the practical relevance of the new institutionalism
    • Three theoretical and methodological essays, and a special introduction for each study, provide the reader with the required theoretical background and an introduction to the new economics of institutionalism
    • Contains the 1993 Nobel Prize lecture by Douglass C. North
