Critical Acclaim
‘This clear and accessible resource on EU antitrust law and policy is a welcome addition to the literature. Johan van de Gronden and Catalin Rusu have successfully distilled a wide range of EU case law and policy into a critical account of the direction of EU law. Increasingly, knowledge of EU antitrust law is of importance to understand not only the internal policy approach, but also how this influences external EU trade policy, alongside comparative approaches to antitrust policy.’
– Erika Szyszczak, University of Sussex, UK
