Our debts, both personal and intellectual, are many. And, no doubt, many are the respects in which we have failed to do full justice to the helpful comments and suggestions that various reviewers of our chapters have kindly provided. None of this, however, detracts from the genuineness of our appreciation-- especially to Richard Adelstein of Wesleyan University, Gerald Berk of the University of Notre Dame, Maxwell H. Bloomfield III of Catholic University, Warren Grimes of Southwestern University, Ray O. Werner of Colorado College, and Judy Hunt, Noah Pickus, and Robert D. Willig of Princeton University. The idea of a unified doctrine of antitrust and regulation, as we present it in the following pages, developed out of a series of discussions between one of us (G. J. G.) and the Honorable Charles M. Butler, then chairman of the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Geri and LouAnn have been enormously patient and supportive. But those are not the reasons why we dedicate this book to them.
