Professor Angela Zhang discusses her new book Chinese Antitrust Exceptionalism: How the Rise of China Will Challenge Global Regulation. The book analyzes Chinese antitrust law in the broader context of China's developing global economic presence and examines how Chinese exceptionalism—as manifested in the way China regulates and is regulated, is reshaping global antitrust regulation.
