Law and Economics in European Merger Control provides a thorough introduction to the economic theory underlying the regulation of mergers. The central economic concepts of efficiency and welfare are introduced and their role in the foundations of competition law is explained. Market structures of perfect competition, monopoly and oligopoly are analysed and the methods for delineating and evaluating the effects of mergers on markets are explained. Having examined the economic context, the book then proceeds to offer an exhaustive analysis of the application of economic theory in the practice of merger regulation in Europe. Through an analysis of more than 300 competition cases the book critiques the current state of EC competition law against its economic aims, and offers views for the future development of the law. It also sets out an account of the European Commission's search for a 'more economic approach' to competition law, and analyses the policy's successes and failures.

The book is a concise treatment of this complex field and does not encumber the reader with a surfeit of potentially distracting Institutional details.
Women have been largely absent as the subject of economic study. Gender and Economics redresses this imbalance with a user-friendly introduction to gender studies in economics. The contributors offer comprehensive coverage of the economic condition of women throughout Europe, examining policies aimed at improving the relative economic situation of women, such as affirmative action, equal opportunity and comparable worth. Giving a unique balance of theoretical and empirical data, it considers the economic theory of gender and economics, the different positions of women in the economy, their earning power, the division of labor within the family, as well as other gender issues. Gender and Economics will be of great use to students of labor economics, and will also provide a wider view for all students of micro- and macro-economics.
International Marketing: A Global Perspective examines the main issues facing companies that want to compete successfully in the global marketplace. It combines extensive coverage of the relevant theories with a practical approach to the issues and broadens the way business students view international markets and marketing. Using real-world case studies and vignettes centred on contemporary problems and issues, International Marketing: A Global Perspective will be ideal for undergraduates, MBA students and students following executive courses in international marketing or strategy. Unlike many US and European texts International Marketing: A Global Perspective does not look out at the international scene from just one standpoint; rather it examines the way businesses go international from a variety of different countries and continents, for instance, from Asia to Europe, Europe to North American and Latin America to the US. The new edition has been brought completely up-to-date and has a full range of ancillary material for lecturers and students.
