Overview

This engaging work examines the interplay between US and EU agricultural trade policy reforms, the linkage between domestic and trade policy reform and addresses whether reform is likely to continue during the first decade of the 21st Century. Features include:

- Comprehensive overview of the interplay between domestic and international agricultural policy reform

- Detailed analysis of the paradigm shift in policy

- Vigorous discussion of the potential impact of emerging issues such as GMOs, intellectual property rights, animal and plant health, and human safety
