Through a multidisciplinary perspective it addresses a myriad of issues concerning platform work that have not received their due attention such as occupational safety and health, discrimination, and gaps in cross-border governance. The editors and contributors have done a fantastic job in making clear both the exceptional – and the unexceptional – aspects of platform work and thus provide a useful guide to scholars, social partners and policymakers of how to shape the gig economy so that it can be of benefit to all.’ – Janine Berg, International Labour Organization, Geneva, Switzerland Nov 2022 c 264 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 350 5 c £95.00 / c $140.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Research Agendas EU Competition Law and Pharmaceuticals Edited by Wolf Sauter, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM), Marcel Canoy, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Economic Adviser to Dutch Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) and Jotte Mulder, Pels Rijcken, The Hague and Utrecht University, the Netherlands ‘Pharmaceutical and vaccine markets are highly complex. In European healthcare systems, the state is the major purchaser, and so ordinary rules of competition law are insufficient in themselves to respond to the various dynamics at play: cost-effective innovation; access to medicines; burden on the public purse. But competition law is one of the aspects of the relevant regulatory toolkit, so it’s crucial to understand how it applies. This cross-disciplinary and timely book goes well beyond the superficial, in its analysis and critique of contemporary developments and the direction of travel of European competition law as it applies to pharmaceuticals.’ – Tamara Hervey, City, University of London, UK Nov 2022 c 336 pp Hardback 978 1 80220 440 7 c £110.00 / c $160.00 eBook • Elgaronline New Horizons in Competition Law and Economics series Native Americans and the Supreme Court M. Todd Henderson, University of Chicago, US Although Native Americans have been subjugated by every American government since The Founding, they have persevered and, in some cases, thrived. What explains the existence of separate, semi-sovereign nations within the larger American nation? In large part it has been victories won at the Supreme Court that have preserved the opportunity for Native Americans to ‘make their own laws and be ruled by them.’ The Supreme Court could have gone further, creating truly sovereign nations with whom the United States could have negotiated on an equal basis. The Supreme Court could also have done away with tribes and tribalism with the stroke of a pen. Instead, the Court set a compromise course, declaring tribes not fully sovereign but also something far more than a mere social club.

Professor Stevens’s deep knowledge and scholarship enables him to explain clearly this singularly complex area of law. The book brilliantly covers the interplay between EU level legal rules impacting on pensions, from Treaty Articles to Regulations, and the reserved powers of EU member states to decide on the rules to govern their own state, occupational and individual pensions.’ – Philip Bennett, Durham University, UK Nov 2022 c 328 pp Hardback 978 1 83910 179 3 c £100.00 / c $145.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar European Law series
