This paper is a compilation of short book reviews we have prepared over the past two years for the World Competition Law & Economics Review or the website for the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. Review of notable antitrust books from past years can be found on our authors’ pages on ssrn.com.
Each of the current reviews highlights works that address different needs of the academic and practicing bar. This is not intended as a comprehensive list of publications in the competition law field, but rather those works that crossed our desks and were sufficiently appealing to review.
The reviews are arranged by the date of publication of the review and include: 1) Private Enforcement of Antitrust Laws in the United States: A Handbook (Albert A. Foer and Randy M. Stutz eds. Edward Elgar 2012); 2) Michael J. Sandel, What Money Can’t Buy: The Moral Limits of Markets (Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2012); 3) Joseph E. Stiglitz, The Price of Inequality: How Today’s Divided Society Endangers Our Future (W.W.Norton 2012); 4) The Regulatory Revolution at the FTC: A Thirty Year Perspective on Competition and Consumer Protection (James Campbell Cooper ed. Oxford University Press 2013); 5) Susan Crawford, Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age (Yale University Press 2013); 6) American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law, Business Torts and Unfair Competition Handbook (3d ed. 2014); 7) Daryl Lim, Patent Misuse and Antitrust Law: Empirical, Doctrinal and Policy Perspectives (Edward Elgar 2013); 8) The Antitrust Revolution: Economics, Competition, and Policy (John E. Kowka, Jr. & Lawrence White eds. 6th ed. 2014 Oxford University Press); and 9) Steven Cernak, Antitrust Simulations (West Academic Publishing 2014).
