A Barrister magazine review of my Insider Trading anthology:
Compiled in one handy hardback volume, this publication brings together some of the best learned commentary from the US on this often vexed and controversial subject.
Part of Edward Elgar's admirable 'Corporate Law' series, this engrossing collection of articles offers both a theoretical and historical perspective on insider trading. If you' re doing research, or need some background on this subject, editor Stephen J. Bainbridge has cherry picked a collection of some of the most interesting articles on insider trading published in the US over a period of forty years or so, so you don't have to. How handy is that? ...
Oddly, this book published in 2011 contains no articles, nor does its bibliography cite any article published after 2000 — or maybe we' ve missed something hence the view that this work is of historic importance to the ongoing debate.
A fair point. Two answers: (1) My next insider trading anthology for Elgar will have cutting edge modern scholarship and (2) this anthology was designed to collect pieces that had stood the test of time.
