About Richard Adelstein

My research interests lie at the intersection of economics, law, history and philosophy, and more specifically in the historical development of social institutions and the problem of how social order is created and maintained. I believe that social life cannot be understood from a single perspective, and have written in a range of scholarly disciplines and fields, including economic theory, law and economics, economic, political and legal history, the history of economic thought, and economic philosophy.
