This key book, now in its fifth edition, provides the reader with an in-depth introduction to the competition law of the EC and the UK. It looks at the constituent parts of the law, analysing the way in which the law affects particular commercial phenomena, and explains the economic context in which competition law operates. There have been significant developments in legislation and case law, both in the EC and the UK, and these are reflected in the new edition.

    Professor Whish, from King¿s College in London, England, has produced a most useful Fifth edition of his detailed work on `Competition Law¿. There is a note of apology from him when he starts his Preface by reminding us that the last edition only came out in late 2001. However, I am extremely grateful for the new edition because if he had waited a further twelve months before producing it, the European Commission would have published its Notices, and the other important changes would have occurred largely unnoticed.In what is an extremely complex area of growing European Law for many researchers and practitioners, it is nice to know that there are still some enjoyable diversions from the demands placed on the development of any real understanding of our competition law as illustrated by Whish with his knowledge of Bollywood. I wait for the next edition with bated breath.
