The second and considerably expanded edition of this work examines the application of EC competition rules to all forms of permissible industrial cooperation and change in corporate structures. In particular, the book provides an in-depth analysis of the Merger Regulation in view of Commission case law during the first two years' operation of the Regulation, together with an analysis of the application of Article 85 to joint selling and purchasing, research and development, specialization, restructuring, cross-shareholdings and production. The substantial text is supplemented by valuable appendices. Thorough indexing, cross-referencing, detailed index and tables of cases and legislation render this a very accessible, major new work of reference for practitioners, academics and students alike.
