Surveys of Recent Research in Economics Series
Each year, the Journal of Economic Surveys publishes a special issue devoted to a particular theme which is also available to buy as a book. This series is intended to help busy academics and practitioners keep abreast of important economic developments that relate to, without necessarily being narrowly focused on, their more specific interests. These volumes should be of interest to academic economists, political scientists (and, indeed, other social scientists), as well as practitioners engaged in policy-making and implementation. The contributions are accessible to advanced undergraduates and provide useful supplementary reading for a wide variety of courses in both economics and political science.
