Book Review: Capitalism and Law mix well
There have been quite a few edited volumes about law in Asia, but Law, Capitalism and Power in Asia: The Rule of Law and Legal Institutions (Asian Capitalism) still has some value, despite being over a decade old. It focuses on the intersection between law and commerce in Asia. Most of the essays focus on administrative law in a particular country, with a few articles comparing several countries in a particular issue, such as insolvency law. For those of us primarily interested in Southeast Asia, this book is particularly useful because over half the essays are just on that region.
