The benchmark for competition law textbooks
on 14 February 2012
This 7th edition of Whish's classic textbook is fully updated to take account of the Lisbon Treaty, the Commission's Guidance document on the enforcement of Article 102 and the new Vertical Block Exemption, amongst others. As always, the book continues to explain this vast area of law in an engaging and accessible way, both for LLB and LLM students. Almost every topic and sub-topic is cross-referenced with suggestions for further reading, so again 'Competition Law' is very handy for those starting a dissertation and in need of some useful direction. The book is very well-structured, each chapter starting with a 'Contents' section, before dealing with the topic at hand in a very logical fashion. Theories and concepts are broken down with easy-to-follow headings and sub-headings - something I found indispensable when learning such a complex area of law.
The authors have clearly reached the top of their game and this is reflected in the incredible breadth and depth with which 'Competition Law' is written. I used the previous version of this book to my great advantage when I did my own LLM, and I bought this 7th edition for reference. Overall, an excellent investment and a very timely release, given all that has happened in competition law over the past three or fours years.
