This Third Edition of the Kintner-Joelson classic International Antitrust Primer comes five years after the publication of the Second Edition, with substantial revisions and additions reflecting important developments in international cooperation, in national competition rules, and in the competition legislation of the European Community. As antitrust continues its global march and the search for harmonization and coordination progresses, it is ever more important that the current state of competition law, its direction, and its relevance to everyday business transactions be understood and appreciated beyond the sphere of the antitrust specialist

Like its predecessors, this updated Primer describes the main provisions and case law of some key national and regional competition regimes, including their application to international transactions. As in the previous editions, the author offers a relatively detailed explanation of developments in a few important jurisdictions, rather than covering many jurisdictions by offering a brief summary of a great number of national antitrust laws. The regimes covered are the United States, the European Union (EU), Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Japan.

In the course of the presentation important areas of transnational convergence appear, as well as significant points of disparity. Many areas and issues of great concern to business persons and their counsel arise, among them the following:-

  • intellectual property rights;
  • foreign government action;
  • extent and kind of criminal sanctions;
  • extraterritorial reach;
  • mergers and acquisitions;
  • level and type of enforcement activity;
  • effects of national foreign or domestic policy;
  • permissible cooperation among competitors; and
  • public procurement.
The many business persons, government officials, students, lawyers, and others who have been relying on the Second Edition for years will greatly appreciate this thoroughly updated volume. There is nothing else that so lucidly and helpfully explains competition law, as a regime of both domestic and international law, for those who do not specialize in this field but require a working knowledge of the subject to proceed confidently in their day-to-day work.
