Professor Korah's short monographs on specific topics within EC Competition law are well known and widely used. This work follows the pattern of her previous books on group exemptions for technology transfer and parallel imports. It examines the regulation on vertical agreements, starting with a chapter on the economic background, before developing, in a series of chapters, a careful analysis of vertical agreements and all the relevant case law. A further chapter deals with agreements which do not come within the regulation, again paying careful attention to the case law.
