Standards, Regulation, and Governance
'An excellent contribution to our understanding of the political construction of markets... This is a well-written book, enjoyable to read as well as being very informative. I view this volume as a 'must read' for all scholars and graduate students in the areas of government and business, the politics of market economies and comparative politics in general. Michelle Egan's description and explanation of market construction and its impact on business standards, regulation and governance will be valuable to all of us for many, many years to come.' -Henry Jacek, McMaster University; Polibus: Newsletter of the IPSA Research CommitteeThis book provides a detailed analysis of the policies and institutions used by the EU to create a single market.
