The rapid growth of network industries has generated much comment amongst academics and policy makers. This timely volume takes an interdisciplinary, case study-based approach to examining network issues and experiences in order to develop recommendations that can inform antitrust, regulatory and legislative policy. Legal, economic, political and institutional aspects of network access are analyzed. The first part of the volume focuses on five topics that are central to reasoned analysis of the access problem. The second part presents ten case studies of network access in the energy, transportation, telecommunications, internet and banking industries. The volume concludes with comparisons and contrasts across the cases and policy recommendations.

Network Access, Regulation and Antitrustwill prove invaluable to students of business, economics, law and economics and industrial economics, policy makers and academics working in the field. 

Diana L. Mossis Vice President and Senior Research Fellow at the American Antitrust Institute.
