Competition Law and Practice: A Review of Major Jurisdictions is a guide which compares the competition laws of long established regimes with those of emerging markets, such as China, Korea, India, Mexico, Brazil and Russia.

The book outlines each jurisdiction's view of price fixing along both horizontal and vertical lines, and some of the key exceptions which Governments allow. It documents the legislation out in place by emerging growth economies such as China, Korea, India, Mexico, Brazil and Russia, which have growing significance to companies trading internationally but have perhaps to date have been viewed as less transparent.
