This European Competition Law Journal article reviews "The Global Limits of Competition Law," edited by Ioannis Lianos and D. Daniel Sokol. It is the first book in the Stanford University Press Series, Global Competition Law and Economics, and is inspired by Judge Frank H. Easterbrook's seminal 1984 article, "The Limits of Antitrust." The book, a compilation of 15 separate articles, has a global cast of authors writing from varied perspectives and jurisdictions. That approach is a strength, and the book collectively celebrates both the limits and potential of competition law. I recommend it.
