Book Reviews

pile of open books

Our books are reviewed in a variety of places – from specialised journals to blogs, online newsletters and websites.

Please find below a selection of some of our recent reviews.

“This book explores the means to govern and defend the seas, and the core of the book is an analysis of the law designed to shield regional seas and an assessment of its effectiveness. It offers an essential primer of international conventions, institutions, and laws and regulations that guide maritime governance that is useful to both specialists and newcomers to this issue area.”



Helen Ingram, University of Arizona; review of Environmental Governance Of The Great Seas: Law and Effect in Environment: January/February 2014.


“In a much-needed and important overview and analysis of the field that should appeal to students of political science and corporate law, Wilks argues the forces that created the corporation have ‘unleashed new autocrats, immune from effective political control.”

Nizar Manek, independent reporter and writer; review of The Political Power Of The Business CorporationLSE Review of Books.


Philip Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers; review of Private Enforcement Of Antitrust Law In The United States, on his YouTube channel.



Three Elgar books were also selected as Choice Outstanding Academic Titles for 2013. R. Saunders, Temple University, described Extraordinary Cities author Peter Taylor as engaging in:

“….an archaeological dig of mammoth proportions never before witnessed in the study of cities. An incredible work.” (CHOICE Vol. 51, No. 03).  

S.R. Steele, Berea College, said of Economics, The Environment And Our Common Wealth:

“Although the volume is written to be highly approachable, its greatest achievement is in providing academic depth and modern analyses on a wide variety of issues where the common environmental heritage is at stake.” (CHOICE: Vol. 51, No. 01).

And finally P. Clawson, Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said that Frank Gunter, author of The Political Economy Of Iraq, has written:

“….the definitive account in English of the contemporary Iraqi economy… The scope of coverage and degree of detail is matched by clear exposition and thoughtful analysis.” (CHOICE: Vol. 51, No. 02).
