Industrial Organization is a central branch of microeconomics that has historically provoked a great deal of debate among economists. Steve Martin draws on this debate and economic history in order to examine the economics of markets, industries and their participants and in doing so addresses the implications for public policy towards business behaviour. Industrial Organization in Context leads students through the essential concepts that are central to understanding the strategic behaviour of firms and the policy questions at the heart of Industrial Organization. It takes an international approach, examining both US Antitrust and EU Competition Policy and their development. Classic and contemporary examples serve to illustrate the theory and experimental tests of models help students to study economic questions.This book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which includes:For students: essay questions, links to useful websites, historical timelinesFor lecturers: Scientific Workplace, slides, instructor manual

The author has a delightful writing style, all the time making clear why he comes at the problems from a historical perspective.
The extensive coverage of both regulation and 10 topics in one book is rare. One always needs to supplement when teaching one or the other. This book fills that need.
This is a very good text. It reads well and, importantly, it has the distinctive quality of providing a substantial amount of institutional and empirical material. This is invaluable in conveying to the reader the relevance of economic analysis.
The book is up-to-date, it addresses issues that are important in the economy of the 21st century, and it does this integrating historial points, formal models and practical examples. A good all-round 10 book.
