Goyder’s EC Competition Law (ed.5)

Joanna Goyder, Albertina Albors-Llorens

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.

Goyder’s EC Competition Law is firmly established as a classic text on this area of law. The emergence of competition law has been one of the most important features of the EC and has had a significant impact on many aspects of UK business and economic life. This book provides a full account of its development since the inception of the EC in 1957.

Competition law is a complex and often highly technical subject which the authors have unlocked by exploring its historical origins and early developments before illustrating the main areas of substantive law. Covering all of the major areas studied on undergraduate and postgraduate courses, the book contains not only a full account of the substantive law and its social, political and economic context, but also a penetrating assessment of its practical effectiveness and likely future development.

Topics covered in this new, revised, fifth edition, include:
 the Modernisation of the Enforcement of the EC Competition rules
 the new Block Exemption Regulations on Motor Vehicle and Distribution, and Technology Transfer Agreements
 the Commission review of Article 82 EC
 the new Merger Regulation
 recent developments in international aspects of EC competition law.
