The Obama Trials

Our new essay collection, The Obama Trials: the US antitrust agencies in the courtroom, 2009-2017, describes in vivid detail the lawsuits and courtroom battles that have defined the antitrust legacy of President Barack Obama.

Built around his campaign trail promise to reinvigorate antitrust enforcement in the US the book explores in a dozen chapters whether and how that promise was kept - from the early structural reorganization of the Department of Justice's Antitrust Division, to the near-unprecedented string of courtroom victories by it and the Federal Trade Commission.
