Review

It should be emphasised that Competition Law of the EC and UK achieves a level of depth and comprehensiveness that goes far beyond what can normally be expected from a students' textbook. Its well-arranged tables of contents, tables of cases and decisions, as well as its comprehensive index, render this book very handy and reader friendly. It therefore also serves as a quick and reliable reference guide for competition law veterans and practitioners, to whom I can strongly recommend this book. (E.C.L.R - Issue 1, 2009Dr Volker Soyez, Partner, Lorenz)

Product Description

Competition Law of the EU and UK 7e builds on the strengths of Mark Furse's original textbook to provide an engaging and approachable introduction to competition law. It offers up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the most recent cases and legislative changes. Taking a comparative look at the links and differences between EU and UK law, fundamental economic concepts which underpin the subject are also clearly explained.
The changes introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon and the implications of the recent economic crisis are highlighted throughout the book. This edition contains new features, including a chapter on state aid, a revised focus on procedural aspects (including an analysis of the White Paper on Damages and the first criminal conviction for breach of competition law in the UK), an in-depth look at the review of Article 102 TFEU, a study of the new UK Merger Guidelines, and an account of the key changes
of the new EU block exemption for vertical agreements.
The inclusion of detailed case summaries, enhanced flow charts, and other useful visual aids contribute towards providing a stimulating approach to competition law, making it an ideal introduction to the subject for undergraduates and postgraduates new to this area of the law.

Online Resource Centre

An absolutely useless text book.

Coming to the subject as a complete beginner (on a post-graduate short-law course) this was the textbook recommended by my tutor. However, the book is entirely confused and confusing. There are pages and pages of waffle, but precious little content. Concepts are frequently referred to before being introduced, leading to yet more confusion. The fundamentals of EU competition law (Articles 101 and 102 TFEU) aren't discussed until half way through the textbook; the first half is largely pointless. Key concepts are not properly set out.

As a beginner the organisation prevents it from being any use; for an advanced student or practitioner I suspect it would be far too basic. Don't bother.

Another useless book on competition law. I have read a few. For some reason, authors on this subject seem to have an uncanny ability to waffle around the subject without actually say anything.

When you read a book for academic purposes, you want the subject broken down into specific and discrete components so that you can present the information in an essay answer. This book does not help you do that. There is no breakdown of the specific UK Acts and what they do. Like all other authors on this subject, this book waffles generally about the subject without saying anything concrete enough to put in an essay.

Another book on competition law that does not appear to consider a definition of monopoly as important.
