Abstract: As regulation boomed as an instrument of public policy, from the 1980s, so it has also become a major field for scholarly research which draws on a remarkably wide range of disciplines, including accounting, anthropology, criminology, economics, geography, law, political science and sociology. Regulatory governance today has its own major conferences and journals (notably Regulation & Governance), titled professorships and thriving graduate programmes. In Governing Through Regulation: Public Policy, Regulation and Law, Eric Windholz argues that much of the scholarly literature is insufficiently engaged with and accessible to practitioners. A key objective of this volume is to engage the burgeoning practice community with the central ideas of contemporary regulatory governance scholarship. Windholz’s readership is ‘persons who find themselves working with regulation …’ recognising that the practitioner is increasingly likely to be a postgraduate student of regulation.
