First Page



This Symposium issue of the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law presents a collection of excellent articles on current antitrust law and United States international trade practices by some of the most knowledgeable scholars in the field, all of whom possess not only superb academic credentials but also a wealth of experience in international antitrust practice. Wilbur Fugate, former chief of the Foreign Commerce Section of the Antitrust Division and a distinguished author on antitrust and foreign commerce, opens the Symposium by examining the Webb-Pomerene Act" in light of the very recently enacted Export Trading Company Act of 1982...

The Symposium concludes with a review of James Atwood and Kingman Brewster's Antitrust and American Business Abroad by Joel Davidow. The 1958 edition of this book by Brewster was the first--and for years the most important--analytical discussion of the field. Subsequent publication by Wilbur Fugate of Foreign Commerce and the Antitrust Laws in 1974, and the very recently published two-volume revised edition in 1982, together with Barry Hawk's United States, Common Market and International Antitrust in 1979, have added to the short list of important contributions in recent years... This Symposium does not survey the entire waterfront of anti-trust in multinational context--none could. Nevertheless, it presents quality articles by impressive writers on subjects of great importance.
