John N. Drobak, Editor
Norms and the Law
Cambridge University Press, 2006
K370.N67 2006

Scholars from a variety of fields provide different points of view on the relationship between law and norms. This book consists of essays that examine this relationship in four different contexts including using the viewpoints of cognitive science and behavioral economics to analyze norms that influence the law. Second, three types of common property are used to analyze cooperative norms. Third, some of the essays explore the constraints imposed by norms on the judiciary. Finally, this book investigates the influence formal law has on norms.

George M. Treister, J. Ronald Trost, Leon S. Forman, Kenneth N. Klee, and Richard B. Levin
