Richard Whish and David Bailey 

Richard Whish's Competition Law is the definitive textbook on this subject. The author's authoritative treatment of the area is matched by a lively and easy-to-follow writing style, making this book an indispensable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate law and economics students, as well as for practitioners and officials involved in competition law. Explaining the economic context within which competition law operates in the UK, EC and internationally, Whish looks at the constituent parts of the law and analyzes how they affect commercial phenomena. Key aspects are examined in detail, including mergers, horizontal and vertical agreements, the Abuse of Dominance, Intellectual Property and the obligations of Member States under the EC. 

The book also scrutinizes fundamental Acts and Articles - Competition Act 1998; Enterprise Act 2002; Articles 81 and 82 - providing readers with context, consequences and an overview of how these are applied in practice. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre that accompanies this edition of the book contains an updated table of the OFT decisions, author video podcasts, articles from the authors, and web links. 

This book is essential reading for students, practitioners and officials seeking a respected, reliable, intelligent and critical approach to competition law.

Review from previous edition 

'There are books that do not need a review, in the sense that they do not need any particular presentation, as everyone has been waiting for their publication. This is certainly the case for the sixth edition of the now classical Competition Law by Professor Richard Whish... ...The conjunction of reasonable price and high quality will certainly make the sixth edition of Competition Law an indispensable reference and research tool for practitioners, academics, and students of competition law. ' World Competition (Ioannis Lianos, New York University School of Law) June 2009
