Reviews

"It is a wonderful book, clear, sweeping, uncannily concise, and insightful." - Eleanor Fox, NYU Law School

"Gerber has endeavoured and successfully written a global guide on competition or antitrust law, as is called differently in different jurisdictions. It certainly acts as a guide by giving a succinct introduction to a rather complicated subject. Having covered every aspect of competition law, including its elements, targets, and experiences, David has left no stone unturned ... The book also ensures greater accessibility and relatability by highlighting the core elements of competition law and patterns of variations in different jurisdictions. By bringing into fore cases and policy changes in different countries, David ensures a global and holistic understanding of the subject ... David mentions in the Preface that his aim was to write a book which is 'as condensed as good poetry and as insightful as good judicial decisions' - I must commend him for having successfully achieved both." - Pradeep Mehta and Sakhi Shah, CUTS International
