More Information
Major developments have recently taken place in competition and antitrust policy in both the UK and EU. Following an informative overview, this timely volume presents authoritative accounts of recent changes and clear analyses of current policy.

As well as discussing new developments in policy towards monopolies, mergers, cartels and state aids, it features chapters on the treatment of vertical restraints and regulated industries. The text also includes a discussion of the relationship between competition policy and intellectual property rights, and concludes with a forward-looking assessment.

Offering a concise account of competition policy developments, this monograph will be of great interest to academics in business and economics, as well as lawyers in both jurisdictions.
Critical Acclaim
‘This very welcome addition to the literature provides a comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of the many recent changes in EU and UK competition policy. As well as the core issues of single firm dominance, merger and restrictive practices, the book also has detailed coverage of the competition problems raised by the regulated industries, intellectual property rights and state aids. The analysis is accompanied by a host of examples from recent cases. The book thus provides an invaluable source of reference and should gain a wide audience amongst economists, lawyers and policymakers.’
– Michael A. Utton, University of Reading, UK and Dongbei University of Finance and Economics, Dalian, China
