This comprehensive research Handbook brings together cutting-edge legal and economic analysis into antitrust issues by leading experts from Europe, the USA, Canada, Mexico and South America. The Handbook of Research in Trans-Atlantic Antitrust covers a wide-range of areas including:

  • the meaning of consumer welfare
  • mergers in monopsony markets
  • unilateral effects
  • private and criminal enforcement
  • implementing competition policy in regulated sectors
  • abuse of intellectual property rights
  • competition remedies
  • international enforcement cooperation
  • complainants' rights
  • dominant firm pricing
  • tying and bundling.

The Handbook also includes discursive consideration of the similarities and differences among the various regimes on either side of the Atlantic, as well as a look to future trends and applications in regional and global contexts.

Offering a comparative view of pressing antitrust issues, the Handbook will be of great interest to academics, lawyers, practitioners and officials.

'This Handbook assembles a valuable collection of insightful analyses dealing with many cutting-edge issues arising in modern antitrust enforcement on both sides of the Atlantic.'
- Philip Lowe, European Commission

'The contributions to this Handbook provide a comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of antitrust law in the Americas and Europe. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about antitrust law and its administration in the major enforcement areas of the world. This is bound to become an important reference for antitrust students and experts.'
- Keith Hylton, Boston University, US
