x, 530, [2] p. 24 cm. Illustrations. Selected Bibliography. The Sherman Act. The Clayton Act. Merger Guidelines. Index. The former Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission has distilled the maze of cases, rules, and guidelines of the enforcing agencies, and presents them in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. From a January 1, 1992 newspaper obituary: "Earl W. Kintner, a chairman of the Federal Trade Commission in the Eisenhower Administration and a longtime senior partner in the Washington law firm of Arent, Fox, Kintner, Plotkin & Kahn, died on Saturday at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington. He was 79 years old and lived in Washington. He died after a long illness, said a spokesman for his firm. While in the Navy from 1944 to 1948, he was appointed Deputy United States Commissioner to the United Nations War Crimes Commission. After his discharge from the Navy, he joined the staff of the Federal Trade Commission and served as a trial lawyer, then adviser and general counsel before becoming chairman. In 1961, he joined Arent, Fox, Kintner, Plotkin & Kahn as a senior partner, and established and directed the firm's antitrust practice. He retired in December 1990 and then served as counsel to the firm. He was the author or co-author of 7 antitrust and trade regulation primers, 11 volumes on Federal antitrust legislative history and 9 volumes of a treatise on Federal antitrust law. As chairman of the commission from 1959 to 1961, Mr. Kintner urged industry to regulate itself, but he also vigorously enforced antitrust regulations. During his first year in the job, the soft-spoken lawyer repeatedly called on the television industry to police itself with respect to false and misleading advertising and then warned that his agency would conduct a formal investigation if necessary. "Self-policing is no good unless there's a cop on the corner with a big stick, who's willing to use it, " he said in an interview. Under his leadership, the agency issued a record number of complaints and orders in the 1960 fiscal year aimed at false advertising and other deceptive trade practices and at monopolistic activities.
