Christopher May - a leading authority in the field - has selected material that provides important insights on the global governance of intellectual property. His collection ranges across a number of disciplines and political perspectives to establish that the political economic analysis of intellectual property is both multifaceted and contested. Professor May has also provided an introduction that will serve as an authoritative and comprehensive guide to the main issues under discussion. This three-volume set will be an invaluable reference source both for those seeking an in-depth understanding of the main issues in this important field and for established scholars wishing to develop their analysis in new directions.
