This section selects books on themes related to competition laws and economics. This compilation does not attempt to be exhaustive but rather a survey of themes important in the area. The survey usually covers publication over the last three months after publication of the latest issue of Concurrences. Publishers, authors and editors are welcome to send books to catherine.prieto@univ-paris1.fr for review in this section.

The Third Edition of the Telecom Antitrust Handbook is intended to serve as a comprehensive review and analysis of the application of antitrust law and principles to the telecommunications industries (including wireline and wireless telecom, broadband access, and video programming distribution) for use by telecom and antitrust counsel in evaluating the many competitive issues that arise in the telecom markets.

The book guides the reader through the fundamental economic underpinnings of communications networks that make substantive analysis of antitrust issues in these sectors both unique and challenging (Chapter I), and then transitions to a discussion of the history of regulation and monopolization issues in the industry (Chapter II), restraints of trade (Chapter III), joint ventures (Chapter IV), mergers (Chapter V), immunity issues (Chapter VI), and finally an overview of consumer protection issues (Chapter VII), including the evolving regulation of consumer privacy.
