Abstract
 
Description
Langlois (economics, U. of Connecticut), Tony Fu-Lai Yu (economics, U. of New South Wales, Australia), and Paul Robertson (management, U. of Wollongong, Australia) have collected 80 excerpts and articles that consider various aspects of firms and markets. The initial paper, from 1999, offers a review of the theory by Langlois and Nicolai Foss (also at the U. of Connecticut). Subsequent topics in volume one include landmark works by Alfred Marshall, Frank Knight, Edith Penrose, and others; transaction costs, property rights, and economic organization; and agency theories, incomplete contracts, and corporate governance. Volume two turns to topics that include capabilities and resource-based views, with articles by G.B. Richardson, Birger Wernerfelt, and L. Peteraf. Other topics include strategic theories, the technological paradigm (with three articles by David Teece and two by Giovanni Dosi), and behavioral theories. The final volume features articles on Austrian theory, historical perspectives, evolutionary theory of the firm, and the firm and the market. Each volume contains a name index; there is no subject index. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) - from Amzon
