    A concise student treatise on antitrust that includes the basics of the microeconomic foundations on which modern antitrust doctrine is built.  Many students stumble trying to disentangle economic theory from doctrine, and this treatise expertly blends the two, clearly and concisely defining the terms and basic concepts that all antitrust students need to know. Author Daniel Crane is well regarded for his antitrust scholarship.
