The ABA Antitrust Section has published Issues in Competition Law and Policy.
BOOK ABSTRACT: Competition policy in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere is embedded in a complex regime of laws predicated on the public policy choices of each jurisdiction. While other books provide a comprehensive treatment of the current state of antitrust law in the United States, this 3-volume hardcover set examines directly and in detail, the technical legal framework of competition law and the policy issues that lie behind the law.
The focus of the book is a complete and detailed perspective on issues in the design and enforcement of competition law, and is not a treatise on the case law. This book is the perfect complement to Antitrust Law Developments, the premier handbook on U.S. antitrust law, as Antitrust Law Developments scrupulously avoids policy issues. Issues in Competition Law and Policy now fills this informational void for the first time.
