Abstract

John Haley’s comparative study of competition law in Germany and Japan is in many ways a pioneering work. It uses comparative analysis to provide insights into the development and operation of competition law in the two countries, and, as the author notes, there has been very little serious scholarly work of this kind, despite its potential benefits. This is all the more remarkable because of the intense interest during recent years in the "internationalization" of competition law. The book takes comparison seriously and shows some of the ways in which it can produce valuable insights that cannot be easily discerned, if at all, through other methods. For this reason alone, the book is of much value.
