The Antitrust Revolution: Economics, Competition, and Policy, Fifth Edition, examines the critical role of economic analysis in recent antitrust case decisions and policy. The book consists of economic studies of twenty-one of the most significant antitrust cases of recent years, twelve of them new to this edition and nine updated from the fourth edition. These cases include alleged anticompetitive practices by Visa and MasterCard, Microsoft, and Kodak; mergers-proposed or consummated-by Staples and Office Depot, PSEG and Exelon, EchoStar and DirecTV, and Heinz and Beech-Nut; and other competitive issues such as predatory pricing in the airline industry, "reverse-payments" in settlements of patent litigation, the use of bundled rebates by dominant firms, exclusive dealing, and retailer-instigated restraints on supplier sales. New overview essays precede the four sections of the book: Horizontal Structure; Horizontal Practices; Vertical and Related Market Issues; and Network Issues.
