"There is no question that a well-defined 'Chicago School' of political economy has emerged, built largely around the work of George J. Stigler and his colleagues. "Chicago Studies in Political Economy" brings together the key works in this field, works that have been extremely influential among economists who study political processes. It is a collection of enormous value."--Roger G. Noll
