Critical Acclaim
‘This well-written and up-to-date book covers all important elements of EU and European Competition Law. The authors are thorough, comprehensive, and balanced in their treatment of both public and private enforcement in every substantive area, including the distinctive features of individual European countries. Every serious antitrust student should own a copy.’
– Herbert Hovenkamp, University of Pennsylvania, US

‘This book explores significant issues of EU competition law. Its added value is the national dimension: various national competition law systems are analyzed in the light of the European competition rules. It is also very timely given the attention paid to new developments such as the DMA and the Foreign Subsidies Regulation.’
– Marc van der Woude, General Court of the European Union
