About the Book

The text continues to be revised by two of the leading lawyer economists of the early 21st century. This traditional casebook is also known for its pedagogy (cases, explanatory text, and problems) and insightful text that convey essentials background information along with necessary economic principles. Helpful appendices includes Selected Statutes―the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act―and a thorough, complete Teacherís Manual accompanies a powerful volume adopted at all levels of law schools.

The Seventh Edition incorporates the latest Supreme Court and Circuit Court cases, legal changes, and developments in the law. A revised section on distributional restraints takes account of Leegin, and an updated chapter explores 2010 Merger Guidelines.
