Abstract:     
This is a book review of International Antitrust Litigation: Conflict of Laws and Coordination, edited by Jürgen Basedow, Stéphaine Francq, and Laurence Idot.

In a world in which the significance of territorial boundaries continues to be challenged, lawyers and scholars face an increasing need to coordinate and assign legal relationships by way of reference points that are not territorial. As people, goods, services, ideas, and streams of electrons cross national boundaries and free-flow around the globe, regulatory regimes (national, international, subnational, supranational, and nonstate) are brought into conversation and, at times, conflict with one another. We are, in the words of one commentator, witnessing a world of global legal pluralism that is beyond borders and constantly at risk of conflict. How to negotiate these conflicts is the subject of a substantial academic literature in the field of private international law, especially in the European Union, where the inter-national aspects of law are concretely recognized and balanced through an EU regulatory regime.
