Praise for the book

"This is a wonderful book by brilliant authors and a concept whose time has come. Students deserve free access." Eleanor Fox, Walter J Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation Emerita, NYU School of Law

"A remarkable achievement and a breath of fresh air. Up-to-the-minute coverage of a fast-changing landscape and a stimulating and innovative blending of cases and scholarship." Stephen Calkins, Professor of Law, Wayne State University School of Law

"There are many terrific books from which to teach antitrust. So why is this book the best teaching tool? It incorporates the very latest developments in enforcement activity and judicial decisions—and will always be ahead of its rivals because of its online nature. My students loved the book. Its tone is refreshing—it’s written to appeal to students and instructors. It doesn’t play hide-the-peanut. Case excerpts are accompanied by explanations of why the case matters and how it matters. And the book is free to students. And easy for instructors to adopt. What’s not to like?" Douglas Ross, Professor from Practice, University of Washington School of Law

"This new antitrust casebook by Daniel Francis and Chris Sprigman is an exciting new entrant into the market. The casebook is modern, rigorous, and complete – and free to students to download. The materials have been well-chosen for students to understand and deeply analyze the issues during this period of great criticism from outsiders and rethinking by insiders. Needless to say, I am happy that the authors chose to include some of my own writings." Steven C. Salop, Professor Emeritus of Economics and Law, Georgetown University Law Center
