Journal of Economic Literature 2018, 56(1), 265 –277 https://doi.org/10.1257/jel.56.1.265 Editor’s Note: Guidelines for Selecting Books to Review Occasionally, we receive questions regarding the selection of books reviewed in the Journal of Economic Literature. A statement of our guidelines for book selection might therefore be useful. The general purpose of our book reviews is to help keep members of the American Economic Association informed of signic fi ant English-language publications in economics research. We also review signic fi ant books in related social sciences that might be of special interest to economists. On occasion, we review books that are written for the public at large if these books speak to issues that are of interest to economists. Finally, we review some reports or publications that have signic fi ant policy impact. Annotations are published for all books received. However, we receive many more books than we are able to review so choices must be made in selecting books for review. We try to identify for review scholarly, well-researched books that embody serious and original research on a particular topic. We do not review textbooks. Other things being equal, we avoid volumes of collected papers such as festschriften and conference volumes.
