This book, first published in 1905, examines the encroachment of monopoly upon the principle of competition in the industrialised world. It considers that competition is the life-blood of trade and commerce, and analyses the likelihood of the emergence of further monopolies and kartells. It also pays close attention to the actual law on monopolies and competition, as it stood in the UK, the USA, and Europe.
