Abstract

It is not surprising that scholarship relating to competition law, especially its comparative and international dimensions, has been dominated by scholars based in either law or economics. As obviously important as these two perspectives are, however, they are by themselves often too narrow to illuminate important aspects of the operation of competition law systems. Professors Bruce Doern and Stephen Wilks have tackled this deficit, bringing the perspectives and methodologies of political science to bear on global competition law issues. The volume of essays they have edited is a welcome and valuable step toward expanding the horizons of competition law and increasing our understanding of how competition law systems operate.

Keywords: comparative law, competition law, international law, law, economics, political science, globalism, law systems
