My Industrial Organization reading list

Here is my preliminary reading list for the spring semester; the class is for Ph.d. students and some Masters students.  I always have them read one atheoretical, typically lousy management book for purposes of contrast.  I then ask them why abstract theory is any better.  Most of all I try to teach the core mechanisms of microeconomics.  I believe in enforced self-constraint, no matter what the academic level, so they have a brief quiz on the assigned readings every week.  Additional reading suggestions would be welcome, I have turned on the comments function for this purpose.  If you wish, check out part I of the class from this fall, can you guess who taught that…?
