Review quote

`. . . the articles contained in this book provide an excellent understanding as to how the law developed to where it is today, not only in the United States, but also in the United Kingdom and other jurisdictions. This is therefore a book for those who have a very serious interest in this subject and who wish to develop an understanding of the thinking which has led to the current position. This means it is probably more likely to be of interest to academic lawyers rather than practising lawyers. However, it would be a great pity if it doesn't reach a wider audience as each chapter is truly excellent.' -- Andrew Campbell, Journal of International Banking Law and Regulation `Stephen Bainbridge has made the study of insider trading a very understandable law book. . . Insider Trading is a most useful conglomeration of vital thoughts on the issues of insider trading as it applies across the world. The papers on inside information and on information withheld give much food for thought and will bring much imagination to prosecutors. It makes light reading of a very important matter and is a highly recommended book that must be included in law libraries everywhere.' -- Sally Ramage, The Criminal Lawyer `. . . 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 Bainbridge has cherry picked a collection of some of the most interesting articles on insider trading published in the US over a period of 40 years or so, so you don't have to.' -- Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine `Insider trading, among all topics in securities regulation, has generated an extensive discourse with far greater heat than light. Steve Bainbridge has performed a valued public service by putting together the best in the legal literature with this volume. Hopefully, going forward, with this endeavor the heat/light quotient will be impacted, if not reversed.' -- Roberta Romano, Yale Law School, US `Insider Trading contains a superb collection of articles - providing an excellent overview of insider trading from both a theoretical and historical perspective. The book should prove quite useful for academicians and students desiring a collection of a variety of insightful sources in one volume.' -- Marc I. Steinberg, Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, US
