Summary Protecting economic competition has become a major objective of government in Western Europe, and competition law has become a central part of economic and legal experience. National competition laws have long helped to shape the relationship between government and the economy, and their influence has grown dramatically during the last decade. Competition law has also played key roles in the process of European integration, and it is likely to continue to do so in the future. This book examines European experience in protecting competition, analyzing the dynamics of European competition law systems, revealing their impacts and assessing the political and economic issues they raise.
