Since it first appeared in 1978, this seminal work by one of the foremost legal minds of our age has dramatically changed the way the courts view government's role in private affairs. Now reissued with a new introduction and eiplogue by the author, this classic shows how antitrust suits adversely affect the consumer by encouraging a costly form of protection for inefficient and uncompetitive small businesses Robert Bork's view of antitrust law has had a profound impact on how the law has been both interpreted and applied. Lucid, highly readable, and full of rich social and political implications, "The Antitrust Paradox" illustrates how the purpose and integrity of law can be subverted by those who do not understand the reality law addresses or who seek to make it serve unintended political and social ends.
