Table of contents

In this engaging treatise, respected author Daniel Crane presents an approach to antitrust law that allows students to have a strategic mindset in their course.

Antitrust is a concise student treatise that includes the basics of the microeconomic foundations on which modern antitrust doctrine is built. Many students stumble trying to disentangle economic theory from doctrine, and this treatise expertly blends the two, clearly and concisely defining the terms and basic concepts that all students need to know. 

Antitrust is an indispensable reference that features a comprehensive overview of the major antitrust statutes, including Sherman, Clayton, FTC, Robinson-Patman, and Hart-Scott-Rodino Acts. Topics include substantive operation, antitrust immunities, and questions of standing and jurisdiction as well as nontechnical explanations of economic theories for students without an economics background.
