The book is the first publication in Poland that deals with antitrust assessment of the economic effects of horizontal mergers. The purpose of the book is to construct models for assessing the effects of horizontal mergers, which are based upon available economic knowledge. Application of these models should lead to increased effectiveness of state supervision over this kind of economic operations. The book is based upon phd thesis defended with distinctions at the University of Warsaw Faculty of Law and Administration.

The book is based upon economic analysis of law. The book contains elements of the legal and comparative analysis of the Polish legal system and antitrust laws (including broad analysis of case law) of Germany, Great Britain, France, the European Union and the USA. Models for the assessment of horizontal mergers effects have been divided by the author due to the characteristics of the relevant markets into: differentiated products markets, homogeneous product markets, and bidding markets. Legal and comparative analysis as well as the application of economic concepts were based on the foundations and general principles of Polish administrative law and public commercial law.

The aim of the author of the book is to present models of the assessment of horizontal mergers that in the light of the aims of Polish competition law should be used by the Polish competition authority.
