The tenth edition of Whish and Bailey’s Competition Law was published on 26 August 2021. The book explains the purpose of competition policy, introduces the reader to key concepts and techniques in competition law, and provides insights into the numerous issues that arise when analysing market behaviour.
In their foreword to the tenth edition, the authors comment on the remarkable rate of change in competition law and policy. Apart from the quotidien events of competition law and policy – for example court judgments in the EU and UK, decisions of the European Commission and the UK Competition and Markets Authority, consultation papers, legislative proposals, legislation, guidelines, speeches and articles – three particular events have informed the content of the tenth edition: Brexit, the COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid growth of digital platforms.
Reviewing a previous edition, Professor Colomo commented that Competition Law “has been widely (and rightly) praised for its clarity and has long set (and still does) the standard for other textbooks in (EU) Competition Law.”
