Barry E. Hawk reviews Giuliano Amato, Antitrust and the Bounds of Power. This Book Review states that Professor Giuliano Amato has successfully written a refreshing and insightful book on antitrust policy after more than a century of US debate and almost half a century of European debate. In his highly enlightening opus on Antitrust and the Bounds of Power, Professor Amato writes from the Olympian heights as the former head of the well respected Italian Antitrust Authority, a former Prime Minister of Italy, and a present professor at the European University Institute in Florence. The book places antitrust law in the broader context of political theory and history. Although the author modestly states that the book is written for young people embarking on an immersion in antitrust law, seasoned antitrust veterans will greatly benefit from Professor Amato's measured wisdom.
