Practitioners in the field of EC competition law know well how difficult it is to find specific references about specific subjects in the case law. Now this superb book a collection of EC competition case law extracts sorted by subject dispels the difficulty. Among its enormous practical advantages are the following:

• Under about 600 headings (44 chapters with numerous divisions and subdivisions), it presents virtually every point from which a researcher in the field is likely to start.

• The extracts are drawn from all the EC competition case law encompassing every judgment, every order of the Court of Justice of the European Communities (ECJ) and the Court of First Instance (CFI) since 1961.

• Because all pronouncements on the same subject are gathered together, inconsistencies among cases are immediately apparent.

The prodigious work of compiling this incomparable guide is accomplished by René Barents, who has been Head of Research and Documentation for the ECJ since 2000. The book thus carries tremendous authority. Although it is primarily of value to barristers, solicitors, in-house lawyers of companies and associations of companies, officials of national competition authorities, and other active practitioners in EC competition law, Directory on EC Case Law on Competition will also be welcomed by scholars and others who need to obtain in a minimum of time an overview of what the European courts have actually stated about a specific point (including detailed references) in the field.
