Part I focuses on five key topics that are fundamental to reasoned analysis of the access problem in antitrust enforcement actions or regulatory policy: natural monopoly and network externalities, tipping, essential facilities, access pricing and access remedies.
Part II presents ten case studies of network access: freight railroads, electricity transmission, natural gas pipelines, local telecommunications, long distance telecommunications, broadband, automated teller machines, internet browsers, internet-based airline and travel services, and online music.
Part III draws out relevant comparisons and contrasts from the key topics and case studies to develop a number of policy recommendations.

The book will prove invaluable to students of business, economics, law and economics, and industrial economics. This book will also be of interest to policymakers and academics working in this field.
