The choice in this Article is to focus on a limited number of points, and then to offer some general conclusions. The plan is to move as much as possible on a chronological basis, starting with the early confrontation in 1962 with the notification process under Regulation 17 and arriving at Council Regulation No. 4064/89 (the "Merger Regulation"), treating in between individual aspects of practice, such as dealing with the DG-IV staff, sources of law, the role of economics, and the role of national courts. The potential scope of each of these points of course leaves wide options to an author. The treatment in this Article is given with the hope that the reader may find themes that strike responsive chords. If the effect is only to stimulate thought, the undertaking will have been worth the effort.
