'This excellent collection of papers by scholars from China, Europe, the US and around the world, examines the coming of age of the Chinese Anti-Monopoly Law through prisms of law and economics and comparative law and policy. Treating critical subjects including case analysis, private enforcement, administrative monopoly, and sectoral regulation and reform, the book is an invaluable guide to an understanding of the dynamic and possibilities of the Chinese law.'
- Eleanor Fox, New York University School of Law, US

This book focuses on experiences with the Anti-Monopoly Law (AML) of 2007 in China. It uses carefully-chosen case studies to examine how the competition authorities in China discuss cases and how they use economic reasoning in their decision-making process.

Bringing together comparative perspectives, the expert contributors discuss the practice of the Anti-Monopoly Law in China from the viewpoints of European and American competition policy. Several very current topics are given specific attention, including enforcement, the role of the state, how to define the relevant market and how to apply the AML to regulated industries. The book also indicates the scope for mutual learning on how to improve the AML.

The Chinese Anti-Monopoly Law will appeal to competition lawyers, attorneys-at-law dealing with economic law generally, civil servants and policy makers, comparative lawyers and social scientists with an interest in developments in China.
