Judge Douglas Ginsburg on Global Antitrust Law and Economics This book is novel because it treats the U.S. antitrust regime as just one of several that have to be considered. My question is: What took so long? Free from the ideologically-driven perspective that can affect other antitrust casebooks, this is also the first casebook organized from inception with an eye directly on the global context. Each chapter places E.C. decisions alongside U.S. decisions. This allows students to learn the law of both regimes simultaneously, rather than learning one and then after the fact trying to absorb the other. As a result, this book may be used in a classroom in Europe just as it will be used in the U.S. The result is a highly welcome contribution to the evolution of competition studies. Judge Douglas Ginsburg is on the DC Circuit, and is a former head of antitrust enforcement for the U.S. Department of Justice. --Thomson West

He is an author of numerous pieces on range of topics even broader than he teaches, including antitrust (monopolization, predatory pricing, tying, bundled discounts, loyalty discounts, disgorgement, petitioning and state action immunity, the Google Books Settlement, and the Harvard v. Chicago schools of antitrust), public law (statutory interpretation, legislative term limits, the 2000 Presidential election, the ObamaCare mandate, and the implications of interest group theory for judicial review), corporate law (social responsibility and sale of control doctrine), patent law (patent holdup and royalty stacking), the legal profession (the value of litigation and counseling advice), and health law policy (healthcare fragmentation, medical technology assessment, how to make health law a coherent legal field, and how to devise a morally just and cost effective medical system). His most recent books include: "Research Handbook on the Economics of Antitrust Law (Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd. 2012)"; "The Fragmentation of U.S. Health Care: Causes and Solutions" (Oxford University Press 2010); "Statutory Default Rules" (Harvard University Press 2008); "U.S. Antitrust Law and Economics (Foundation Press 2011)"; and "Global Competition Law and Economics" (Hart Publishing 2011).

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert H. Lande on March 9, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I had great success using the galleys of Global Antitrust Law & Economics to teach Comparative Antitrust Law at the University of Haifa Law School during the summer of 2006, to both American and Israeli law students.

This textbook is the first and only one on the market that is extremely well suited for use in a comparative antitrust law class. When I taught comparative antitrust in Scotland a few years ago I had to put my own material together because there was no comparative textbook on the market suitable for classroom use. It is simply astonishing that, even though knowledge of European competition law has been important for a United States antitrust lawyer for more than a decade, until now there was no single volume that bridged these fields comprehensively. But at long last the market has filled this considerable gap - by producing Global Antitrust Law & Economics.

This is an extraordinarily teachable book that contains everything you might want to present in a comparative antitrust or comparative competition law class. It always contained exactly what I was looking for - the relevant background, and both the similarities and the areas of greatest contrasts between the United States and the European systems. Moreover, it contains so much of each type of material that the instructor gets the pleasure of picking and choosing which of their favorite topics to cover.

Both the law and the economics are extremely clearly and interestingly presented. I used it to teach a class of students who has never before taken a class in antitrust or competition law. We had to omit much of the book's more sophticated material.
