The Antitrust Enterprise: Principle and Execution. By Herbert Hovenkamp. Cambridge, MA and London: Harvard University Press. 2005. Pp. vi, 368. $39.95.
Herbert Hovenkamp is one of the preeminent antitrust scholars of his generation and the current custodian of the highly influential Areeda-Turner Antitrust Law treatise. The treatise (now commonly referred to as the “Areeda-Hovenkamp” treatise) is in its second edition, spans fourteen volumes, and enjoys unparalleled prestige. It has been cited in over forty Supreme Court decisions and in hundreds of lower court decisions. Justice Breyer once remarked that advocates would prefer to have “two paragraphs of Areeda’s treatise on their side than three Courts of Appeals or four Supreme Court Justices.”
