Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Administrators and practitioners from the postal and delivery industries, regulators, lawyers, and academics offer 21 papers from conferences in Helsingor, Denmark in June 1997 and Montreux, Switzerland in June 1998. They address the major themes of international postal policy; the universal service obligation; regulation; competition, entry, and the role of scale and scope economies; the nature and role of cost analysis in postal service; productivity; the interaction of law and economics; and service standards. Other than one paper on Japan, the focus is pretty exclusively on Europe and the US. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
