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.
Karen Yeung is Professor of Law at Kingâs College London. Her research interests lie in the intersection of public law and economic regulation with particular emphasis on issues relating to regulatory techniques and enforcement.

Editorial Reviews

'I would highly recommend this book for any scholar or student interested in social regulation. Not only does it coherently introduce the reader to a complicated field of social and legal study, but it does so with clarity and carefully thought out consolidation and argument. Drawing on different academic disciplines that have something to say about how to regulate social behaviour, Morgan and Yeung set the agenda for regulation as a field of study and give scholars and citizens alike tools for thinking critically and deeply about how to tackle social problems. This book is a treasure trove of regulatory material and ideas.' E. Scotford, Amazon customer review
