Here is a good, short white paper from the Congressional Research Service about how the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice deal with horizontal mergers and acquisitions.
The paper is a good explanation of how the federal government treats horizontal merger proposals and would be a good resource for students in industrial organization classes.
The paper includes an interesting table of the number of investigations and actions as a function of how many competitors there are in the market. Not surprisingly, the greatest focus is on mergers where the number of competitors goes from 4 to 3, 3 to 2, or 2 to 1.
