Publisher's description

'This new textbook provides an engaging treatment of Australian competition law and is ideal for those studying the subject for the first time. Written in an explanatory and lively style, the text fosters a sound understanding of the legal principles of competition law in Australia and demystifies the economic concepts underpinning the law. The work focuses on the contemporary situation, including the recently enacted criminal and civil regime governing cartel conduct, and also explains the historical context using analogies from popular culture.
