What is included with this book?


Fully updated to reflect important developments in antitrust economics, The Antitrust Revolution, Seventh Edition, examines the critical role of economic analysis in recent antitrust case decisions and policy. The case studies--more than three-quarters of which are entirely new--are written by prominent economists who participated in the proceedings of that case. New and revised appendices support a number of the case studies and help students with the analysis of those cases.
