Christopher Harding and Julian Joshua's Regulating Cartels in Europe: A Study of Legal Control of Corporate Delinquency (Regulating Cartels) is a significant and well-written book that deserves to be widely read by scholars, practitioners, and students in the United States as well as in Europe and other jurisdictions with antitrust laws. For those readers to whom European Community (E.C.) competition law remains largely a mystery, this book also serves as a good introduction to the European system because of its detailed description in the cartel context of the development of the European Community's substantive and procedural rules for handling enforcement of several varieties of competition law offenses, including judicial review and what Europeans call "rights of the defence."
