            Despite abundant literature on transaction costs, there is little to no in-depth analysis regarding what the transaction is or how it works. Drawing on both mainstream and heterodox literature and a variety of interdisciplinary sources, this monograph traces the history of transa...ction costs in institutional economics, mapping the topicality and use of the idea of transaction in institutional economics literature over time, explicating how historical context affects this idea. Vatiero treats the idea of 'transaction' as a construct with legal, competitive and political dimensions, and connects different approaches within institutional economics. The book covers the contributions of key thinkers from different schools, including Veblen, Coase, North, Williamson, Dixit. This book will be of interest to advanced students and researchers of the history of economic thought, institutional economics, microeconomic theory, and law and economics.
