It analyses, in an economic perspective, the conditions under which cooperation among self-interested individuals can emerge and prevail in the absence of some centralized agency. It compares private and public enforcement of the law and discusses the relative attractiveness of either regime. In particular, this book seeks to explain the reasons for a public enforcement of the criminal law.
