'When do firms rely on violence to enforce contracts? And why would they turn to the law, even when it does not work? Jordan Gans-Morse's book is a fascinating, clear and compelling answer to these timely puzzles. Bringing in a wealth of diverse evidence, he argues the firms' counterfactual thinking and beliefs about the barriers to using the law lie at the heart of their decision-making. The implications for the study of property rights, institutional formation, and state capacity are enormous.' Anna Grzymala-Busse, Michelle and Kevin Douglas Professor of International Studies Department of Political Science, Stanford University, California
