Overview

"No other book in advanced international trade matches this one in providing a clear, complete, up-to-date, balanced, and systematic summary of international trade theory and evidence. Its impact on the graduate education and scholarly research of international trade will be felt for years to come."—Bin Xu, University of Florida

"In fifteen years of teaching this material I have never used a textbook. Thanks to Robert Feenstra, my students are about to experience a dramatic change for the better. When I have a question about international trade I immediately turn to Rob Feenstra for answers and insights. He is the most distinguished empirical researcher in the field today. Not surprisingly, this book reflects both his awesome scholarship and his ability to communicate ideas simply."—Daniel Trefler, University of Toronto

"This book is a tremendous contribution. It will quickly become 'the' main textbook in graduate international trade classes, and will be a useful reference for many others interested in the field. It is very up-to-date and is unique in emphasizing empirical testing and results, precisely what most trade economists are doing these days."—Douglas Irwin, Dartmouth College, author of Free Trade Under Fire

"Feenstra covers his topics fabulously. I hope—for the sake of our field—that this book will help to complete a revolution already underway in turning the study of international trade from speculation into a science."—Donald Davis, Columbia University
