I am very pleased to announce the establishment of the new book series Global Competition Law and Economics from Stanford University Press. The two series edtiors are Ioannis Lianos (UCL) and D. Daniel Sokol (University of Florida). Ioannis and I are thrilled about the new series. We expect to publish an edited volume a year. We are also looking for single author volumes on cutting edge international and comparative competition law and economics.
SERIES ABSTRACT: Competition law and economics (known in the United States as antitrust) is an area of cutting-edge academic work with significant policy implications. Once confined to the United States and a few other countries, antitrust has taken off as an area of study in a relatively short period of time. More than 100 jurisdictions now have competition laws. Increasingly, enforcement activities abroad have far-reaching implications for any antitrust regime. Moreover, developments in economic thinking have helped to reformulate attitudes in both academic and policy circles. This book series will be at the forefront of the development of new ideas and approaches within the field.
