Antitrust Law, by Richard a. Posner
ANTITRUST LAW, by Richard A. Posner, University of Chicago Press, Forthcoming
Posted: 8 Jan 2001
In this extensively revised second edition of a book first published in 1976, Posner offers a compact but thorough and extensively documented analysis of U.S. antitrust law, employing the economic perspective that has become dominant over the quarter century since it was advocated in the first edition. The history of U.S. antitrust enforcement is sketched, the major cases are dissected, the major areas of substantive law are treated in depth (collusion both express and tacit, mergers, price discrimination, information exchanges and vertical restrictions, and exclusionary practices), and problems with the administration and enforcement of the antitrust laws are considered at length and solutions proposed.
