The literature on Directive 2014/104/EU on certain rules governing damages actions under national law for infringements of the provisions of competition law of the Member States and of the European Union has been enriched by a new opus devoted in particular to the national transposition of this instrument. After two introductory chapters, the main part of the book analyses the acts giving effect to the Directive in sixteen of the Member States (Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States). The three editors of the book sign the last two chapters, which draw some cross-cutting lessons from the transposition exercise, before setting out some concluding remarks, among which they say that the 2014 Directive may only be the beginning of a more ambitious reform process of national competition laws.
