Are there any books that are used in University-level courses that contain a detailed analysis of market structure ( Perfect competition , Monopoly and so on)?

  • $\begingroup$ I guess, what you mean is that they are used in University-level courses, and I think its useful to have a more specific title so that people know wha you are asking right off the bat. $\endgroup$ – Fix.B. May 11 '16 at 15:08

The standard, if somewhat aged textbook for graduate study of industrial organization is

The Theory of Industrial Organization by Jean Tirole.

Tirole has the merit of tacking issues around market structure in a quite direct fashion. A slightly more modern text is

Industrial Organization: Markets and Strategies by Paul Bellflamme and Martin Peitz

A less advanced text that can be downloaded for free is

Industrial Organization: A Strategic Approach by Jeffrey R Church and Roger Ware


It's worth mentioning that Industrial Organization is typically not encountered as a stand-alone course until the late stages of an undergraduate degree or until graduate level, so books on this subject will typically be more advanced than a standard econ101 text.
