9780199244010: Law and Competition in Twentieth Century Europe: Protecting Prometheus

In recent years, national competition laws have become increasingly important, often creating tensions between national-level and European-level regulation. Despite this importance, images of Europe's experience with competition law often remain vague and are sometimes dangerously distorted. This book examines the European experience in protecting competition by analyzing its dynamics, revealing its importance, and highlighting the political and economic issues it raises.

Review:

`It is impossible to do justice to this substantial and important volume in just a few sentences, but let it suffice to say that the core of the work is a narrative about the evolution of competition law and policy, and the weight of the argument is provided by a set of interwoven concerns
about the role of law in society, about the forms and means of control of competition and competitive markets, and about the dispersion and convergence of cultural, political and economic influences and effects between different jurisdictions in varied geographical and historical spaces.'
Jo Shaw, Professor of Law, University of Leeds in European Law Journal

`For those interested in wider perspectives, in the origins, place and future of competition law, this book is an indispensible must.'
Mark Furse, University of Westminster in European Competition Law Review

`Fascinating treatise ... the policy arguments dealt with in this book are indeed fascinating, and very persuasively argued ... For those interested in wider perspectives, in the origins, place, and future of competition law, this book is an indisputable must, and on my bookshelf joins
Thorelli as a competition law text that is simultaneously good armchair reading.'
Mark Furse, University of Westminster in European Competition Law Review

`There are books that one wishes had been written earlier and that oneself and others had read earlier. This book is in that category ... Current controversies about European competition law are full of examples in which differing conceptions of competition law go unrecognized and thereby
impede mutual understanding. Gerber's book helps us to recognize these differences and thus to reduce these comprehension problems ... This is a fascinating book, and one can only regret that it wasn't written earlier.'
Claus-Dieter Ehlermann, Professor of European Law, European University Institute, and former director, EC Competition Directorate, in Europarecht 2000

`It is really a great book, and I am suggesting to everybody to read it.'
Franco Romani, Former director, Italian Competition Authority, and Professor of Economics, University of Rome

`There is almost nothing published on the history and development of competition law in Europe. It is this important and interesting topic which this book sets out to deal with. It does this very well... interesting and important book ... Most of the comments are clear and sound, and nothing
important is omitted. The perspective is broad, but there is plenty of detail.'
Dr John Temple Lang, Common Market Law Review

`The practising lawyer... may learn more here than elsewhere about the background and history of what has become a highly complex regulatory field. And he or she may close the book at the end with deeper insights of why the rules are what they are today, and how they came about in a complex
political, economic and legal setting. And perhaps even more importantly, the story told may assist in guiding us in finding future ways. Elegantly written... this is a timely and fascinating book... essential reading for all seeking to understand the subject, going beyond contemporary
technicalities of competition law and policies.'
Thomas Cottier, Journal of International Economic Law Vol.3 No.1

`A comprehensive historical document describing the birth and the evolution of European antitrust thinking...The author's book is to my mind necessary reading for all antitrust practitioners. It will provide them with a good "contextual" argument when they will interpret antitrust statutes.
But the book is good reading for the public at large as well.'
Prof C M Petros The Columbia Journal of European Law Spring 2000 Vol.6 No.2

`a sucessful and useful book that causes a careful reader to look at the world through a new and important lens.'
Spencer Waller, Professor of Law, Brooklyn Law School, Antitrust Bulletin 2000

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Protecting economic competition has become a major objective of government in Western Europe, and competition law has become a central part of economic and legal experience. The competition law of the European Union has played a key role in the success of European integration during the last four decades, and it is likely to do so in the future. In recent years, national competition laws have also become increasingly important, often creating tensions between national-level and European-level regulation. Yet, despite its importance, images of European experience with competition law often remain vague and are sometimes dangerously distorted. This book examines European experience in protecting competition, analysing its dynamics, revealing its importance and highlighting the political and economic issues it raises.
