'It is a very thoughtful and fruitful reading for those interested
in theoretical studies on the doctrinal development of EU
competition law. It will be of particular interest to those with
advanced knowledge of EU competition case law.' Oles Andriychuk,
'In addition to being an important contribution to the understanding of EU competition law and its development, The Shaping of EU Competition Law is an excellent product of legal science. Its academic rigour is clearly visible throughout, especially in the elaboration of its methodology, research questions and limitations, the extensive discussion of its results, and the correlating agenda for future research.' Justin Lindeboom, Common Market Law Review
'... The Shaping of EU Competition Law is one of the most profound works on the interplay between the institutional and the substantive dimensions of EU competition law. By virtue of the depth of its analysis and the comprehensive empirical work that forms its foundation, the book provides a notable contribution.' Or Brook, European Competition Law Review
'For academics, policymakers, practitioners and judges in the area, the book is a must-read; for administrative law scholars it is strongly recommended reading.' European Competition and Regulatory Law Review (CoRe)
'In addition to being an important contribution to the understanding of EU competition law and its development, The Shaping of EU Competition Law is an excellent product of legal science ... this book is nonetheless clearly destined to become a standard work on the evolution of EU competition law and the crucial influence of the institutional dimension of legal enforcement on the content of substantive law.' Justin Lindeboom, Common Market Law Review
