Antitrust Analysis: Problems, Text, and Cases earned the respect of instructors nationwide by its dependable and distinguished treatment of the history of antitrust law and its up-to-date coverage of horizontal and vertical agreements, mergers, and monopolies. Now, in its Sixth Edition, this highly regarded casebook covers a wealth of new material with the same authority and insight for which the book is so well known.

The book builds on the strengths that have made it such a longtime favorite:
• exceptional authorship, with two of the leading lawyer economists of the early 21st century revising and updating the work of Phillip Areeda, the leading antitrust commentator of the 20th century
• effective pedagogy: traditional casebook with cases, explanatory text, and problems
• insightful textual examples that convey essential background information
• and necessary economic principles thorough Appendix containing Selected Statutes, the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act
• complete Teacher's Manual

The entire casebook has been updated to reflect legal changes and developments:
• updated chapter on Mergers now discusses current merger practice, emphasizes agency enforcement standards, presents compelling examples, and considers the range of negotiated remedies and the importance of international law
• older Supreme Court cases are converted to note form or omitted
• recent lower court decisions, such as FTC v. Staples, give students an understanding of modern litigation
• streamlined chapter on Vertical Restraints includes recent cases and new text to provide a more coherent framework for this complicated area in major revisions to the chapter on monopolization include the Microsoft
• and American Airlines cases

With the added expertise of new co-author Aaron Edlin, the definitive antitrust casebook is now also the most current. When you examine your complimentary copy, you will see why Antitrust Anaysis: Problems, Text, and Cases, Sixth Edition, is sure to continue as the standard in law school classes.
