The following is a compilation of short book reviews I have prepared over the past two years for the World Competition Law & Economics Review or the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, Loyola University Chicago School of Law website. In one case, the book discussed was published in 2010, but I did not get around to reviewing it until 2011. Review of notable antitrust books from 2009-2010 can be found at

Each of the current reviews highlight works which address different needs of the academic and practicing bar. I have included a couple of more general interest books which also will appeal to antitrust professionals.

This is not intended as a comprehensive list of publications in the competition law field, but rather those works that crossed my desk and appealed to me enough to review. The reviews are arranged by the date of publication of the review and include: 1) ABA Section of Antitrust Law, Market Definition in Antitrust: Theory and Case Studies (2012); 2) Brett M. Frischmann, Infrastucture: The Social Value of Shared Resources (Oxford University Press 2012); 3) The Global Limits of Competition Law (edited by Ioannis Lianos and D. Daniel Sokol) (Stanford Law Books 2012); 4) Marc Levinson, The Great A&P and the Struggle for Small Business in America (Hill & Wang 2011); 5) American Bar Association, Section of Antitrust Law, Monograph 26, Electronic Commerce: Antitrust and Consumer Protection in the Information Age (2011); 6) Kenneth M. Davidson, Reality Ignored: How Milton Friedman and Chicago Economics Undermined American Institutions and Endangered the Global Economy (2011); 7) Daniel A. Crane, The Institutional Structure of Antitrust Enforcement (Oxford University Press 2011); and 8) The International Handbook on Private Enforcement of Competition Law (Albert A. Foer & Jonathan W. Cuneo editors) (Edward Elgar 2010).

Keywords: antitrust, competition, competition law, Market Definition, Infrastructure, commons, A&P, price discrimination, chain stores, small business, electronic commerce, Chicago School, antitrust enforcement, technocracy, private enforcement
