Drawing on a wide variety of classic and contemporary sources, the authors provide a critical analysis of the institutions and agreements that have shaped international trade rules. Special sections cover areas such as agriculture, services and trade-related intellectual property rights. The environment, labor rights and migration are also examined in light of the growing debate over globalization. Drawing on previous highly praised editions but including up-to-date material on the Doha trade round and the growing body of WTO dispute resolution case law, this comprehensive text is an invaluable guide to students of economics, law, politics and international relations.
