The classic text on antitrust economics, The Antitrust Revolution: Economics, Competition, and Policy, Sixth Edition, provides detailed and comprehensive insights into the central role that economists play in the antitrust process. Written by the economists who were involved in the actual court proceedings, the articles explain the key issues, arguments, and evidence surrounding each case; the economic and legal significance of the proceedings; and the impact of the case on the company/industry involved. Ideal for undergraduate and graduate classes in industrial organization, government policy, and antitrust/regulation law and economics, this volume is also a useful reference for lawyers and economists.
John E. Kwoka, Jr., is Neal F. Finnegan Distinguished Professor of Economics at Northeastern University. Lawrence J. White is the Arthur E. Imperatore Professor of Economics at the Stern School of Business at New York University.
