Antitrust Paradox: A Policy at War with Itself
Antitrust Paradox: A Policy at War with Itself
by Robert H. Bork
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A book so influential that it defines the debate., 7 Mar 2010
Despite being written in the 1970's, the original and high brow criticism of antitrust policy contained in this book dominates the intellectual and academic debate to this day, on a truly global scale. Well written, and easily accesable by people who have no background in either law or economics, this book is an absolute necessity for anybody seeking to understand the issues behind, and flaws in modern antitrust/competition policy. Having read this book, and gained insight into Bork's massive intellect, it beggars belief 23 years later, that senator Kennedy thought it proper to block this mans ascendence to the supreme court.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fun if nothing else., 7 Mar 2010
This review is from: The Antitrust Religion (Hardcover)
Rockefeller approaches the subject in an exciting and angry fashion. This book is extremely enjoyable to read, and excellent when taken as a light hearted criticism of this subject. However, at times the author seems to present extreme, verging on insane, opinions and is thus practically useless as an authority for somebody who desires to make a detailed criticism of antitrust/competition law. If one desires a more intellectual and valid discussion of the issues presented in this book, The Antitrust Paradox by Bork is highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably THE textbook on this subject., 7 Mar 2010
This book may seem a little long in comparison to other textbooks in this area. In our view, this is a mistaken view: the book is littered with useful case and academic extracts, which while increasing the overall length of the volume, are arguably essential reading for an individual trying to get to grips with this subject. Information is portrayed in a logical and structured fashion, allowing the reader to get a real insight into its place in the scheme of things, particulary by explaining how the cases interact with each other and academic theory on this most complex of subjects. This book is an absolute must for anybody wishing to gain a detailed understanding on EC Competition Law.
