Editorial Reviews


“[Page and Lopatka] present a detailed summary of the parties' strategies and of the legal decisions (primarily the federal case); sketch the economics (network effects, path dependencies); and analyze various proposed remedies (conduct, structure). The book also includes an excellent, detailed summary of the US legal issues in the Department of Justice prosecution of Microsoft. . . . Highly recommended.”

(Choice 2007-12-28)

"This book will become the gold standard for analysis of the monopolization cases against Microsoft. Page and Lopatka place the litigation in an important historical context with a detailed connection to law and public policy. No serious student of law or economic policy should go without reading it."
(Thomas C. Arthur,�Emory University School of Law)

“The first book to provide a clear and careful exposition of the facts and contending economic arguments of the government’s case against Microsoft, it is a must read for all those interested in the trends in competition, technology, and the law.”
(E. Thomas Sullivan, Senior Vice President and Provost, and Julius E.�Davis Chair)

“This book provides a thorough discussion of the law and economics of the Microsoft case, which consumed the time and energy of numerous lawyers and economists, as direct participants in the litigation or in providing real-time commentary as the case progressed. The Microsoft case is unique among high- profile antitrust lawsuits in terms of the level of scrutiny given to it during the course of the litigation.  This book captures many of the perspectives offered on the case as well as the authors’ own very sensible conclusions on the lessons of the case.”
(Keith Hylton, Professor, Boston University School of Law)

“An excellent account of the facts and theory of the government’s case against Microsoft and how it fits into the American antitrust tradition.  The authors present a view of the Microsoft litigation that will keep the controversy over that decision and its legitimacy in the spotlight.  A very well written and well argued book.”--Herbert Hovenkamp, Ben and Dorothy Willie Chair, The University of Iowa College of Law
(Herbert Hovenkamp)

"[This book] provides a sophisticated understanding of the antitrust prosecution of the U.S. Justice Department mounted against the Microsoft computer company in 1998. The authors incisively analyze the leading decisions and remedial orders from some 150 opinions. . . . Economists, law and economics experts, lawyers, judges, and historians will find the analytical theories to be sound, innovative, and presented quite accessibly."
(Tony A. Freyer Business History Review)

"The Microsoft Case is far more than a source. It's also a coherent analysis by two economically literate legal scholars who are obviously doing their best to present an unbiased account."
(David R. Henderson Regulation)
