This is an excellent book, and it comes at a good time, given the
rapid growth of antitrust law around the world. In three parts, each
a book within a book, it treats: (1) United States antitrust law ap-

excerpts from case reports and documents - I would guess about

kind of text I prefer - one which gives context and insight but
avoids the heady temptation suffered by some writers to issue rulings
on everything.
