This second edition of the Digest is enriched with a selection of more than 50 essays on European competition cases from the 27 European Union Member States, EU law, and US law. Each essay consists of a synthesis of the leading cases from 1990 onwards. These essays are organized in two parts. Part I deals with Competition Provisions (Cartels, Dominance, Merger, State aid, etc.) whereas Part II deals with Business Sectors (Automobile, Broadcasting, Healthcare, IT & Telecommunications, Sports, etc.). This new edition of the Digest provides an enhanced overview of the areas of convergence and remaining diversity of competition law in Europe featuring also analysis of key areas of US Antitrust law. This book has proven to be one of the most valuable and useful resources currently available to build a body of comparative law in Europe. It highlights both convergence and divergence in various areas and sectors of European competition law, making it easy for both practitioners and academics to draw comparisons between jurisdictions.
