They serve as signals tools for attracting new faculty and retaining older in highly ranked institutions and also help attract the best graduate students who have academic aspirations.

Who will control markets and gain riches? Is the playing field level or slanted? Is there open, effective, creative competition, or instead monopoly with its controls and exclusions? These issues--at the heart of economic striving and progress and involving the very largest commercial interests--are carefully explored in this highly regarded volume, now available from Waveland Press. The Fourth Edition of The Economics of Industrial Organization teaches students to think independently in judging complex issues that do not have definitive research answers. As the author states, "Mastering the concepts and techniques--and unruly facts--is task 1; applying them skillfully, to form independent judgments, is the mature task 2." The book lays out the core topics in their natural order, in a format carefully tested in the author's various classrooms over many years of teaching. Its emphasis on independent judgment is one feature; another is the basic format that allows for flexibility. Many choices can be made in topic emphasis, order of subjects, and depth of detail. Still another feature is the many compact case studies offered in chapters 13 and 14.

This book is not going to take you through the obscure world of the hard math to help you understand how the Industrial Organization theory works. It provides real-world and anecdotic examples and data which help theory make more sense. It also provides extremely clear and graphical explanations on each topic which are accompanied by valuable "Questions for Review" sections after each chapter. It is like reading comics and with that I mean that Shepherd has a gift at making his points clear.

It is a must for undergrad students, however, I would not recommend it if you are looking for a text that emphasizes mathematical analysis. In that case it could only be used as a reference book for the intuitive part of the concepts and for a historical summary of theories.
