Examples and Explanations for Antitrust, 3rd ed. by Christopher L. SagersExamples and Explanations for Antitrust Law, Third Edition is a relentlessly accessible introduction to a body of law that seems foreign and complex but does not at all have to be. By capturing the bigger picture without sacrificing any detail, introducing antitrust economics in a purely intuitive way appropriate for users at any level of economic sophistication, and extensively explaining the real-world context and institutions of antitrust practice, the book brings the law within reach for students of all backgrounds. New to the Third Edition: Incorporation of all significant judicial and legislative developments since 2011 In-depth new coverage of the "two-sided" or "platform" market theory introduced in the Supreme Court's seminal 2018 decision in Ohio v. American Express Revised coverage of conspiracy, monopolization, and merger law in light of key lower-court decisions, like United States v. AT&T, New York v. T-Mobile, Steves & Sons v. JELD-WEN, Viamedia v. Comcast, SC Innovations v. Uber Technologies, and the Alston NCAA litigation Expanded treatment of advanced antitrust economic theory in a substantially revised Appendix, including a full examination of bargaining theory and other developing models, and their performance before the courts. Professors and students will benefit from: Extensive attention to real-world context Heavy emphasis on accessibility in language and explanation, but backed up with support for economic and legal study by more advanced readers (for example, the Appendix on advanced antitrust economics) A two-step introduction to antitrust economics accessible without any prior background in economics, built on a purely intuitive and non-quantitative introduction supplemented by more formal explanation for more advanced readers
