This text seeks to highlight the growing importance of the language, practice, and study of regulation for contemporary social life, to show how the theory and practice of regulation have developed through a process of continuous interaction, to explore key themes in the study and practice of regulation, to assess developments, and to suggest how these trajectories will develop in the future. The challenge for this book is not only to account for this broadening and maturation of interest, but also to illustrate how regulation has remained a moving target, both in the fields of practice and study, for the past three decades. The very concept of regulation has evolved so that study in this area is no longer confined to the examination of dedicated ‘command’ regimes that are designed to offer continuing and direct control over an area of economic life.

Keywords: regulation; language; social life; command regimes; economic life
