Stephen Martin is Professor of Industrial Organization at the Faculty of Economics and Econometrics, University of Amsterdam. Since August 1996 he has been co--managing editor of the International Journal of Industrial Organization.


"This is an outstanding textbook. It covers practically anything one would ever want to include in a lecture course in Advanced IO, and it does so with the perfect blending of rigorous theory and advanced empirical analysis." Gianni De Fraja, University of York, and CEPR "Stephen Martina s book is a marvellous effort. No other text provides such a comprehensive and updated overview of the literature of modern industrial economics. I wholeheartedly recommend it for graduate courses in the subject or as a reference for any professional economist... The feature that most distinguishes Advanced Industrial Economics from competitors is the extended treatment of the literature on empirical tests of market structure and performance. This was long overdue, and Martin has to be commended for introducing new generations of students to empirical work int his field. As a teaching tool, there is much to admire in the book as well: many of the issues are given a histroical perspective so that students can better appreciate the direction in which both the theory and the empirical work has progressed. Martin also provides a wealth of material on the booka s website, including an extended discussion of the theory of contestable markets as well as a solutions manual."
