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 and give them context with a comprehensive and critical commentary. By adopting an interdisciplinary approach and emphasising the role of law in its broader social and political context, it will be an invaluable tool for the student coming to regulation for the first time. This clearly structured, academically rigorous title, with a contextualised perspective, is essential reading for all students of the subject. • Broad audience appeal, adopting an interdisciplinary approach that covers a range of social scientific perspectives whilst emphasising the role of law in regulation • A clear organising frame to orient readers through a broad and diverse range of literature drawn from a large variety of disciplinary perspectives, whilst a critical commentary allows an overview of academic debates • Existing books tend to be directed primarily for policy-makers, limited to single disciplinary perspective, or where interdisciplinary comprises of literature extracts without an organising frame and commentary Contents Introduction; 1. Theories of regulation; 2. Regulatory instruments and techniques; 3. Regulatory enforcement and compliance; 4. Regulatory accountability and legitimacy; 5. Regulation above and beyond the state; 6. Conclusion. Printed Pages: 372.
