`...presented in a user-friendly format...a most valuable compilation of the courts practice.' ECLR `Review from previous edition This excellent book provides a detailed and critical analysis of the Commission practice on merger control, including many Commission decisions, and drawing conclusions and general principles from the Commission practice. These features together with the economic reasoning included throughout the book will make it very useful for practitioners. Generalists and students will also find the book useful as it is well and clearly written.' Valentine Korah in World Competition `...comprehensive, thoroughly documented and benefits from the participation of past and present officials of DG Competition... Readers will be rightfully impressed by the sheer magnitude of this work. ... Particularly noteworthy is the exhaustive treatment of horizontal and vertical mergers, as well as collective dominance. ...a truly monumental work that is both practical and intellectually rigorous. ' Frank Fine, Antitrust Source `The 'treatise part' of the book is presented in a user-friendly format...is a most valuable compilation of the courts' practice on these subjects.'
