Summary: Unlike all-inclusive antitrust books designed for law programs, this streamlined text minimizes procedural issues and focuses on the economic aspects of the nation's landmark antitrust cases.
Reading this casebook, students learn firsthand how to wrestle with legal writing. The text was assembled to give students the opportunity to read the actual language of Supreme Court judges as they interpret the nation's antitrust laws and as they set forth judicial opinions that profoundly affect the strategy of U.S. businesses.
Instead of relying on a writer's point of view, with this book, students interpret for themselves the justice's reasoning behind decisions on the nation's most important antitrust cases.
Streamlined coverage enables instructors to take more time with other aspects of antitrust.
Headnotes summarize the topics to be covered in the case law material.
The extremely portable casebook includes a strong collection of contemporary cases assembled by two antitrust authorities.
New to this Edition:
Coverage of all of the recent major antitrust cases has been added to this fully updated edition, including such new cases as "Kodak" and "Superior Court Trial Lawyers."
